    What OS / Compiler are u using?

    Also, what resolution, and graphic quality do you want to have? I have a tutorial on Mode 13h, which uses 320x200x256 resolution. It's at www.brackeen.com

    If I was going to do 2d graphics. i would set up a 3d draw sceen and just use some texture mapping.
    This medthod works in fullscreen, window, OpenGL, and DirectX

    "what is the source code to include graphics in programs",


    this isn't a valid question, because there are about a million ways of doing it.

    use a graphics library such as OpenGL, Direct-X, Allegro, or something.

    check these links for info

    for OpenGL:
    http://www.opengl.org

    for Direct-X:
    http://www.microsoft.com/Directx

    for General Gaming "Making" Info:
    http://www.gamedev.net

    for General Graphics(and more) Programming Info:
    http://www.flipcode.com

    im not sure for Allegro...

    all the stuff i write is too large to post(eg. it uses Win32).

    here,

    has a bunch of GL examples
    http://nehe.gamedev.net

    has a bunch of direct-x examples
    http://nexe.gamedev.net

    and as govt. said all the links i gave previously have plenty of example source.

    Exclamation Rephrase

    Here let me rephrase my question. How do you include an image that has already been made. In Borland. Specifically, how would you load a .bmp or .gif?

    read the format specification, and read the data accordingly, or get a lib to do it for you.

    http://openil.sourceforge.net/
    DevIL is one thats pretty good, and handles a lot of image types, i think the source is public or was anyway.

    http://www.wotsit.org has a lot of Formats you can read through and use to write a loader.

    ::edit:: http://www.cprogramming.com/boardfaq.html#pic the FAQ has a loader.
