For those of you looking for a simple (and free) way of importing various image file formats into your own programs, check out FreeImage. Its a free library for Windows that supports multiple formats. Here's a clip from the web site:

" FreeImage is a free, multithreading safe image loading library for all 32 bit versions of Windows, including Windows 2000. The library will load BMP's in the same way as the Win32 LoadImage(...) API call. FreeImage supports far more image formats than LoadImage though, which makes it more usefull than the good old LoadImage. FreeImage also allows you to change the bitmap's bits and palette-data using various effect functions. "

For details and downloads, check out the FreeImage web site.
