You should learn more about graphics formats (PCX, BMP, GIF, TIFF, Etc.), that is for reading this files, and about pointers too, 'cos you wouldn't know how big is the image so you can create an array (no way man), with pointers you can create dinamic variables and stuffed with a lot of bytes (well actualy 64kb, but you can use some pointers to hold more memory), so you see is not that simple, but not imposible, yet you can have help, in here i can't explain all the details but you can do it like i did, read, learn and practice with a bounch of samples in this address (plain text man, no announces, no nothing)

Is this a set up? A chappie called Artis (Artist) is asking about showing pictures. Very suspicious!

you mustn't do anything, just take last version of unit Grafx capable of using any resolution in up to Hi-color, including some image formats (JPG,BMP,PNG,PCX,LBM,FLI)
