Some time ago I was making some programs with 2D graphics in Delphi, and now I'm moving to C++.
So, could you recommend me a graphics engine for C++?

My requirements are:
OS - windows XP and newer
development environment - Visual Studio 2010
also it should support 2D graphics, and be free.

I'll suggest you look at SFML. I find it to fulfill everything I need, not only in terms of 2D graphics, but also windows, audio, and Input. It's got a great C++ API too.

I suggest http://www.openframeworks.cc - it's a wrapper for several libraries, take a look here.
