If you need to write it in C, Sebastian's suggestion to use the sourceforge code is a good one.

If you're comfortable in Delphi you should think seriously about that.  Delphi has all of the appropriate objects in it to do what you want.  The entire Borland C++ graphics library is written in Delphi.

Hi Appmaker,

If you'll "upgrade" to C++ this will be a lot easier.  There are a number of C++ classes that handle jpeg data and will be a LOT easier to use that building your own from the ground up in C.

Post to the C++ or Borland C++ Builder group.

FreeImage - FreeImage is an Open Source library for loading and saving image formats.

The way to go.
I'll supply sample code if you want.
