Full featured cross-platform image library
Developer’s Image Library DevIL is a programmer’s library to develop applications with very powerful image loading capabilities, yet is easy for a developer to learn and use. Ultimate control of images is left to the developer, so unnecessary conversions, etc. are not performed. DevIL utilizes a simple, yet powerful, syntax. DevIL can load, save, convert, manipulate, filter and display a wide variety of image formats.
Currently, DevIL can load and save many different image formats.
DevIL currently supports the following APIs for display OpenGL, Windows GDI, SDL, DirectX and Allegro. Compilers that can compile DevIL or use it include Djgpp, MSVC++, gcc, Delphi, Visual Basic, Power Basic and Dev-C++.
Many people may have known DevIL as OpenIL, but the name was changed due to SGI’s request.
