It appears that BMP written by krita are broken, well, in fact, I don't think 
broken is the right word, for what I know of BMP, there are (at least) two 
specifications, and unfortunately, by default, ImageMagick write BMP for the 
least used specifications, meaning that most other applications (konqueror, 
kuickshow, the gimp, the evil windows) can't open it.
I found the solution when using ImageMagick in console, but I don't know much 
about the magick api, so I let someone with a better knowledge fix the 

In a console to output to the correct BMP specification, you need to do :
convert image.png bmp3:image.bmp
