""FreeImage"" is an Open Source library project for developers who would like to support popular graphics image formats like PNG, BMP, JPEG, TIFF and others as needed by today's multimedia applications. ""FreeImage"" is easy to use, fast, multithreading safe, compatible with all 32-bit versions of Windows, and cross-platform (works both with Linux and Mac OS X).

Platforms supported: ""Win32"", Linux
Headers to include: """"
Header version: 3.15.1
Example included: yes, in ""examples/files/FreeImage""

{{fbdoc item="ex"}}
Here follows an example of using ""FreeImage"" in ""FreeBASIC"". If using Windows you will require freeimage.dll which is available from the [[|FreeImage site]].

'' Code example for loading all common image types using FreeImage.
'' The example loads an image passed as a command line argument.

'' The function FI_Load returns a null pointer (0) if there was an error during
'' loading. Otherwise it returns a 32-bit PUT compatible buffer.
