  1. Create the original Windows bitmap using Microsoft Paintbrush, or some other bitmap drawing package.
  2. 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.
  3. Open a command prompt (MSDOS box) at the location in which the bitmaps are stored.
  4. 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
