I''m having problems getting image information out of a PNG library I''m using to load PNG files into OGL textures and so was wondering if it''s possible to retrieve the width/height of a already bound OGL texture? I looked through the glGet* commands and didn''t see anything that looked like it might get this data :/

Like I said in my first post I''m having trouble getting that info to start with. The PNG library I''m using (GLPNG) crashes whenever I try to access the image info structures.

So I want to try and get the info out of already loaded, bound and discarded images.As a last resort, I''ll have to enter the information manually into a table.

The reaosn I''m going this is to create a warpper function that will render textures using uv coords so I can have multiple small textures on one large one and reduce texture swaps. I''d like to automate this process by obtaining image info at run-time.
