Could anyone point me in the direction of a tutorial/source code that loads a bitmap from a compressed datafile? I have tons of bitmaps that I have to load into memory that compress down to 650 kb but when they are uncompressed, they are around 9 mb. I would just like it if they only had to take up 650 kb of HD space.
I'm sorry if this isn't the right place for the topic, but this forum needs all it can get, right?

Try the OpenSource PNG libraries.

The JPEG library from IJG (V6 I believe) is about as good a compression as you can get, and it is VERY easy to use (took me less than an hour to add JPEG support for some of my tools)
