    New to C++, need help with graphics ..

    Good Day All,
    Im new to programming in c++ and am seeking help with the following task.

    I need a program that will automatically grab a number of image files and then stuff them into an animated .GIF. The .GIF is to be served on the web. I would like to use the gd library (http://www.boutell.com/gd/) as I think it has what I need.

    Im wondering if anyone can point me to sample code for a simmillar program, a tutorial or anything really that would shed light on how to acomplish the task.

    Many Thanks!

    A bunch of programs already do this for you, search google.com for animated gif programs if you don't have to make it. I have no idea how animated GIF's work so that's all the advice I can give you.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Unfortunately I do have to make this program. It will eventually be worked into a system that turns out graphical out put. The program I need to write will take this graphical output and make an animated .GIF automatically.

    For the GIF format: www.wotsit.org

    The rest is just code.

    You should read the documentation for it.

    I am reading it right now.
    My 'programming' background is mainly in avenue, vba and some vb. . C++ seems a bit more complex. Needless to say its taking me a wile to digest the doc.
    Many Thanks
