Well, I made this little program that loads and displays picture (.bmp) in fullscreen. It works fine if the .bmp file is on the computer, but it fails if not. I was wondering if there's someway to include/fuse the picture into the .exe during compilation. This way, it will work whether the computer has the picture or not. I know that this is inefficient in large programs, but mine only loads one picture. So, it doesn't make a difference. Anyways, anyone got a simple way to do this? Thanks
