    Paint Program Example Source Code??

    Does anybody have any source code for a simple paint program that can load/save bitmap (or maybe even gif) format? I found some examples using MFC but I don't want to use MFC or anything like that, just the standard Win32 API and Bloodshed Dev C++.

    Preferrably in C, but C++ would be OK.

    I looked all over the net for one but can't find anything except big programs like GIMP which are way to complicated for me to learn from.

    Look at GDI+ for images.

    LoadImage() will load a bitmap from file or out of your resources (.rc file)

    Try a search here for 'screen capture' for code to capture and save a bitmap.

    All my code is in MFC, as it is easy to use, safe and has a very short development time compared to WIN32.
    Give WIN32 a few years and you will understand why I use MFC.....

    I would use MFC but I have no idea how. Every MFC project I download from the internet will not compile on Bloodshed Dev C++.

    I have a feeling that MFC isn't supported by Bloodshed - but I don't know for sure. It is delivered as part of the Microsoft Visual Studio C++ compiler set.

    MFC is only supported by Microsoft products.

    What errors are you getting?

    According to a moderator on MSDN's forums

    "You need to by Visual Studio 2005 Standard at least, or you need a MSDN abo! ATL and MFC are not available for free download!
    The SDK contains a 64bit version of ATL+MFC. This always causes confusion!
    And because of VC-Express doesn't support 64bit its worthless for you!

    There is no Win32 MFC/ATL version for public/free access! "
