how convert png/tif/jpg/gif to bmp?
I need to do this on a regular basis, or be able to process/manipulate images.
I couldn't tell that there were any built-in libraries for doing this in mingw-w64, and this is the compiler I wish to stay with.

I have heard of libpng,libtiff, etc, don't know if libgif is available (legal issues?),or some kind of libbmp.

and I also remember that they require zlib. so a precompiled windows implementation would be most welcome.

what I am trying to do is convert images for wallpaper. xp only accepts bmp format using the win32 call.

unless someoneknows of a win32 call for converting bitmaps to bmp?
