    I'm not 100% about which one (I use just the WIN32 API not MFC) but you will need to use an image conversion libary. That is Windows only realy deals with bitmaps. So to use jpgs you need a libary to convert them to bitmaps (kind of).

    GDI and or GDI++ are the MS ones and free (again not 100%)

    I use a version from smalleranimalsoftware that is fast and has some very good functions but is not free.
