Hi I am new here and i am practically learning about game programming and i have started with image and graphics. I have basic knowledge in reading and loading a bitmap image since MFC supports it but how about if it is on another format like for example PPM? I hope anyone here who can help me with this one. Thank you to all

For PPM and related formats, you're best off using the Netpbm library. As well as routines you can use to load and save files, it comes with useful utilities for converting between formats, processing images, e.g. blurring, etc.

There are other image loading/saving libraries about that support other file formats such as DevIL.
