Image Files

Fastgraph defines an image as a rectangular area containing some type of picture. An image might be something as simple as a pointing hand icon, or as detailed as the dashboard of a sports car. Fastgraph includes several functions to display, retrieve, and manipulate different types of image files. In this section, we'll begin with a discussion of image file palettes. Then we'll look at the PCX, BMP, JPEG, FLI/FLC, and AVI file formats along with the Fastgraph functions for displaying, creating, and obtaining information about these types of image files. We'll then present an example program that uses most of these functions.
