Am I stupid, or do other people have trouble reading windows .bmp files? The MSDN CD is typcally cryptic when referring on how to load bitmap files. I am interested in .bmp files with a color depth > 256 colors. Do any of you know where I can look to find information on reading the files in so I can use them as texture objects?

Thanks!

Did you check Nehe tutorials? I think one of them has a .bmp load example.

Yes I did. I found the tutorial you are referring to. There is a glaux function that will load .bmp files. Thanks for the post.
