If you want someone to write all the code for your then you need to add a lot points to your question.  Writing the code takes time.  My suggestion is to make this question worth somewhere around 150-200 points.

It sounds like to me that you are asking for an about dialog box.  I have made these, but not with graphics, just text.

Good luck!

i'm not sure if it's possible to display an image - file using the BGI. There are many other (better) ways to do so. It's not a very difficult thing. well, i don't have the time right now to poste here a whole source code that shows this but its not that much work. maybe there is is away to display images in BGI using
GetImage or anything like this. i dont use BGI. This is why i just wrote a comment and not a whole answer now.

You can display jpgs or gifs or bmps if you know the file formats and how to decode them.

My suggestion...

Learn C++... learn Visaul C++... go out in the world and make lots of money.  :)  Or, if you are lazy... learn Visual Basic.  You'll still make money, just not as much, and it's a lot less fun to program in VB than in VC.

If You want to use Pascal, which is fine for a number of applications,
and have an about box with graphics I would suggest searching
the web for sites with free source codes and units that allows
You to read and display various image formats.

There are a lot of sites and very good source that can do this out there.

You wouldn't want to write your own source, I believe, since this would take
quite som effort.

If You are creating commercial software, don't be afraid to buy a graphics lib
that helps You - this will also ensure some quality to your apps.

Hope this helps!

Has a GIF-lib and there are LOTS of other sites out there with good source!

I think with this problem U caould take the easy way out and try to use a unit that makes Pascal display BMP or PCX files, and create ur about text using a graphics editor like paintbrush or corel or something!!
but u can always program the thing urself, but it's quite hard!!
if u get the hang of it.. u can quickly make moving images too...
Keep me updated I can try to dig something up for!!!

I think you can't display any Image - Files like JPG, BMP or PCX using the BGI (GRAPH.TPU). But i could give you a powerfull graphics-library, you can use exactly same like GRAPH, but it comes with more functions, like PCX - Support in any resulation you want, SVGA, TrueColor and HighColor up to 4MB VRAM. ITs a really great SVGA-VESA - Unit. For the graphics, you could get one of the many 3D-Programs avaiable in the Net, if you want me to, i could give you some examples and graphics.
