Hi and I have a simple question. I am designing a c++ application but I need to be able to import pictures from file (nearly all formats) then to place the pixel colors into an array. Also when retrieving the pixel colors it needs to retrieve the RGB scale and the Hue Sat Light scale. Does anybody know of any libraries or any easy ways of doing this as in php this would be a simple job but in c++ am finding it rather difficult. And I am using VC++ in case it makes a difference.

I have downloaded the ImageMagic Standard Template Library but can't find how to achieve my goal in post #1. Are there any examples for what I want done and have I downloaded the right source (standard template library)?
