SDL_Image and buffers

Recommended Posts

I know how to use SDL_Image to load images from a file of the HD. Is it also possible to use it to load png images not from a file, but from a buffer? I want to make my own file format namely, in which I store different png images and other information at once, so I can't use SDL_Image to load that file directly, I have to load it myself and put the separate png's in different buffers. How to use SDL_Imge to load images from such buffers? Thanks.

I made an image file format, and here is the function that made it easy:

It created an SDL_Surface based on a pointer and stuff. I don't know much about PNG, but it is has vertical byte alignment, be sure to strip that out.
