In addition to the above:

Instead of long runs of single-line comments, use POD.

Instead of:

$mode=$ARGV[0]; $frames=$ARGV[1]; $lossy=$ARGV[2]; $skip=$ARGV[3]; @bitmap=`cat $ARGV[4]`;
How about:
my $mode = shift; my $frames = shift; my $lossy = shift; my $skip = shift; my @bitmap = <>;
Even better might be the use of a commandline option processor, e.g. Getopt::Long.

Instead of:

foreach $item (@bitmap) { chomp($item); $total.=$item; } @image=split(//,"$total");
How about:
chomp @bitmap; @image = split //, join '', @bitmap;

It's not clear why

$col=$c; $row=$thisRow;
Such a construct usually implies protecting variables from being clobbered... but I don't see any clobbering going on...

# If you don't want to use this optimization, just # comment out the whole if statement.
Why not provide a command line switch for it?
