No, opengl does not have any support to import images, but there are lots of libraries that can help you with this, but it does depend a little on if you are using Windows, Unix, Mac or want to be platform independant, www.freshmeat.net (http://www.freshmeat.net) and www.sourceforge.net (http://www.sourceforge.net) is a useful source to locate Open Source libraries.

ok so say that I have a library that allows me to do this how can I use opengl to map the jpgs to say a cube in opengl to create an enviornment.

Also, nehe.gamedev.net (http://nehe.gamedev.net) has some pretty good tuts on texture mapping.

happy coding :)
