how to load images

How do i load images into OpenGL? I want to make a program’s GUI in photoshop and load it. Depending on what you click, stuff will happen. Also for example if i wanted the user to enter something at a specific location with(cin>> C++) on the GUI how would i do that?

I’m looking for easy solutions please, nothing hard or confusing.

Thank you.

Use OpenIL (a.k.a. DevIL). It is a very easy to use library to load a wide variaty of images. It has also a strong iteraction with OpenGL.
