    Hello,

    Sorry for the late reply, I don't visit this section very often :-)

    You can load and display images very easily using the Win32 API.
    Simply use ::LoadImage (), to get an HBITMAP. Then, select the
    HBITMAP into a offscreen DC, that can be blitted (Using BitBlt() )
    to the primary window. Keep in mind, this is very windows specific,
    and will not work for other platforms. It is also very slow working
    with the Win32 GDI., hence I don't recommend it for any program requiring
    speed--such as video games.

    Also, keep in mind that graphical images don't work with text modes at all.

    You can easily use the Win32 API to also set different colors for
    text output. Once more, it is system dependent. settextcolor() can
    be found in . Please note, it is not portable.

    Because you are still new to C++, I [b]highley[/b] recommend not
    worring about graphics until you learn OOD concepts, and know how
    to impliment them. Graphics programming can get quite complex,
    espically if you are still learning the ropes of a language.
