    Image Manipulation

    Hello. I'm currently starting work on a university project that involves looking at CCTV footage in crowded areas and then uses an equation (which i don't understand, or need to understand) designed to predict crowd movements to find anyone who isn't doing what's expected.
    Unfortunately, I have absolutely no idea how to open/edit/manipulate images in C++, and very little experience in writing C++ or windows programmes, though I'm pretty confidant in C and console programming.
    So anyway, I'm starting small, and I'm currently working on a program that simply loads a bitmap or jpeg image, displays it in a window, and does something simple like turning everything that's red to black. I've searched the forums here, though I've never been much good at knowing what to look for, but I couldn't really find anything that would help. So, my basic question is: Does anyone have any advice? Books to buy, websites to look at, just a basic idea of how i should go about doing this?
    Thanks for any help

    P.S. I believe that you could find some help from OpenGL. OpenGL is an intense graphics manipulation library. I am sure there are some functions that could help you with your problem in OpenGL.
