Well I've never done it my self but i understand when you have to

Quote

Assume an image is an array of values - for every pixel in that image, it is assigned a value in that array; but this is a simple bitmap. To load a JPG image, that is a compressed file, you should first transpose it in a bitmap file; you have to know the standard JPG compression


Yes its complex thats in c++ and thats only to render an image on there.

II don't know the way to go.And i'm going to take note of this fusion text editor load

Its called a splash screen

Displaying a Splash Screen with C++ (Introduction)
