You can use many libraries for jpeg, gif, png & stuff...
Use Wotsit to look up the specs for whatever graphics file you want to save it as.
try a search here.
This has been asked many times before and answered very recently.
i already searched here before i posted it...
>You can use many libraries for jpeg, gif, png & stuff...
found library for bmp but decided to save as jp(e)g gif or png :)
edit: oh and XSquared, the site isnt working for me..
libjpeg, libpng for Dev-C++....there are many of them...

OK so you have read the thread from 8 Jan 2005 (for a start).

Then you should already have the required librarys.
So what else do you need?
