Hey, new around here and to OpenGL and I was wondering if any of you guys would be able to point me to a tutorial on how to make a picture move with arrow keys. I've got good understanding in langauges as I know quite alot, so I pick up things quick. So if anyone could help me out I would greatly appriciate it.

Thanks for any help. :)

You'll probably want to texture map a quad and either translate your vertexes manually or through the use of the modelview matrix. Here's some information on both:

I personally recommend reading the entire book to get firmly grounded in the basic concepts, if you're not already. Did me a world of good.

Cheers
