Setting up SDL Extension Libraries
Last Updated 9/17/12SDL only supports .bmp files natively, but using the SDL_image extension library, you'll be able to load BMP, PNM, XPM, LBM, PCX, GIF, JPEG, TGA and PNG files.
Extension libraries allow you to use features that basic SDL doesn't support natively. Setting up an SDL extension library isn't hard at all, I'd even say it's easier to set up than basic SDL. This tutorial will teach you how to use the SDL_image extension library.
