Unfortunately, at the moment we have no way of knowing the real format of the image until you click the "Save" button in the image editor. Sometimes images have the wrong extension (e.g. an image with extension .bmp is actually a .png file). That is why we have decided to skip image format checking on the client - it is not always reliable. I am sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you.
