I am trying to learn about openGL, and have a specific application in mind. I was hoping some of you guys would be willing to give some pointers, as to how I can create it.
I want to make a 2D-image gallery. I should look something like this: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/File:GalleryPics.jpg, with the images displayed row by row.
I know that this could probably be achieved easier using other libraries, but I would like to try to do it using openGL.
The problem is that I don’t know where to begin. How do I load in the images (jpg), and how do I display them using OpenGL? Should I treat them as textures?
I hope some of you can help me get started. Thanks in advance!
