I am making a game using OpenGL, with SDL_Image employed to load the textures. When drawn on screen, there's no alpha -- in an exact square around the opaque contents of the texture, black is drawn; outside that space, white is drawn. Here is my OpenGL init code...


SDL_SetVideoMode(windowWidth, windowHeight, 16, SDL_HWSURFACE|SDL_GL_DOUBLEBUFFER|SDL_OPENGL);
glClearColor(0, 0, 0, 0);
glClearDepth(1.0f);
glViewport(0, 0, windowWidth, windowHeight);
glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION);
glLoadIdentity();
glOrtho(0, windowWidth, windowHeight, 0, 1, -1);
glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW);
glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_2D);
glBlendFunc(GL_SRC_ALPHA, GL_ONE_MINUS_SRC_ALPHA);
glLoadIdentity();



...here is my image loading function...


SDL_Surface *loadImage (const char *filename, bool alpha = true) {
SDL_Surface* loadedImage = NULL;
SDL_Surface* zoomedImage = NULL;
SDL_Surface* optimizedImage = NULL;

loadedImage = IMG_Load(filename);

if (loadedImage != NULL) {
zoomedImage = zoomSurface(loadedImage,windowScaleH/4,windowScaleH/4,SMOOTHING_ON);
SDL_FreeSurface(loadedImage);

if (alpha) optimizedImage = SDL_DisplayFormatAlpha(zoomedImage);
else optimizedImage = SDL_DisplayFormat(zoomedImage);
SDL_FreeSurface(zoomedImage);
}

return optimizedImage;
}



...here is the code I actually use to create the GL texture...


GLuint thisIsMyTexture;
glGenTextures(1, &thisIsMyTexture);
temporarySurface = loadImage("theimagetomytexture.png");
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D,thisIsMyTexture);
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, 4, temporarySurface->w, temporarySurface->h, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, temporarySurface->pixels);
glTexParameteri( GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR );
glTexParameteri( GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR );



...and the drawing code itself.


glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D,thisIsMyTexture);
glBegin( GL_QUADS );
glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 0.0f); glVertex3f(0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);
glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 0.0f); glVertex3f(32.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);
glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 1.0f); glVertex3f(32.0f, 32.0f, 1.0f);
glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 1.0f); glVertex3f(0.0f, 32.0f, 1.0f);
glEnd();



That's all the relevant information I can think of. Help would be appreciated! :D
