Hello, I was planning to make some picture viewing program for windows that can support many different picture formats (e.g. bmp, jpg, gif, tga). But I'm not sure how to go about displaying the pictures. I originally wanted to use DirectX because I wanted to practice using it and I thought about loading the pictures as textures and just texturing it on a quad. Would this work considering that the pictures could be any size and textures usually are restricted to having a size of some power of 2? Any suggestions on how to go about doing this? Any other API's to consider?
