Bitmap2Component converts bitmaps to filled polygons scaled by a 300dpi ratio. If your input bitmap is 300x300 px, it will generate a 1x1 inch component.
The problem appears when you try to generate a small component, lets say a company logo of only 0.5x0.5 inch. The input bitmap should be scaled with any other image editing software to 150x150px, and with a bitmap so small Bitmap2Component generates a very ugly component, In the curves is where you can notice it.Examplekicadconverter.png
After a few tests I have created a technique to obtain great quality components using this and other tool I made.
You can also rename the component, but since it's pretty much hardcoded it will mostly work with untouched MOD files generated from Bitmap2Component.
You can see and example difference between results:
