    Graphics aren't easy stuff, at least not for beginners.

    any one know of a standard library for graphics.
    I don't think there is such a thing as a "standard graphics library".
    I believe the most portable ones are Allegro and OpenGL.
    Direct X is (IMO) great, but only for windows.
    I started learning graphics in mode 13, there is a tutorial of this at http://www.brackeen.com/home/vga/index.html

    I would recommend Allegro, although it was mentioned Magos' link. It's nice and simple for beginners (that's why I like it :P ), as long as you know the very basics of c/c++ you should be able to do a few things with it.
    You can go to http://www.allegro.cc if you want to check it out.
