SimpleImage Sample: Loads, Resizes, Converts, and Saves Images
The SimpleImage sample shows how to use the CImage class to load, display, and save a variety of different image formats, including .bmp, .gif, .jpg, and .png. It shows how CImage can be used to manipulate the image in various ways, and how to extract information about the image. SimpleImage uses the CFileDialog class to present the user with the standard Windows dialog boxes for loading and saving files of various formats. The sample creates a docking toolbar using the CToolBar class. The toolbar displays a set of buttons for resizing the image.
