This is really two questions

1 - How do you load a JPEG file and convert it to a non-compressed bitmap?

2 - How do you put a non-compressed, in-memory bitmap to a DD surface?

1: Check on sites like www.wotsit.org for information about the JPEG file format and converting files from the encoded format to a non-encoded mode.

2: Move information, once uncompressed, just as you would any other graphic format, such as BMP, which can be found in just about any tutorial on starting with DD.

just as a side note, JPG's can not be 16bit; they must be 24bit.

Isn't the JPG format copyrighted?

How do you load a jpg into a dd surface?? By this i mean the decription of the file and the actual writing to the surface?? Also, assume that the jpg and surface are 16 bit. Thanks in advance.
