- Create the original Windows bitmap using Microsoft Paintbrush, or some other bitmap drawing package.
- Save the bitmaps at the appropriate colour depth for the target platform. Note that increased colour depth comes at the cost of increased file size, and should be used sparingly.
- Open a command prompt (MSDOS box) at the location in which the bitmaps are stored.
- Invoke the Bitmap Converter on the command line to combine the bitmaps into a multi-bitmap file. Check this link to know how to use bmconv
