    What is GDI+?

    I'm hearing people talking about GDI+ and its additional features and all but what is it?Where can I learn to use it and what are the advantages of it over regular GDI?

    I probaly sound like a noobie but o well.

    If you have winxp you should have the dll, if not

    Go here to get GDI+ run-time dll - (it's called 'GDI+RTM'):

    http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload/...psdkredist.htm

    I've only had a superficail skim but it seems to promise at lot more capability for different image formats, improved region performance, fully double buffered windows (no more flicker).

    Have fun.
