Image manipulation with FreeImage graphics library

Macro FiBitmap help     ?
;FreeImage API declarations, and class FiBitmap.

;FreeImage is a graphics library, <link></link>
;Download FreeImage DLL and Documentation. Don't need source. Put FreeImage.dll in QM folder.
;FreeImage is good for converting image file formats and basic image manipulation with good quality - resize, etc. Unlike many other graphics libraries like ImageMagick, you need just single dll file (~3MB), don't need to install. Easy to use, well documented.
;Other alternatives that can be easily used in QM: GDI+ (a Windows component), GflAx (a COM component, seems abandoned). Search forum.

;Class FiBitmap stores and manages FIBITMAP*. Auto-deletes when destroying the variable.
;The class wraps just basic FreeImage API functions - load, save, etc.
;All FreeImage API functions etc can be accessed through FIMG, like FIMG.FreeImage_GetWidth(x) or FIMG.FIF_BMP.
;A FiBitmap variable can be used with FreeImage API functions as FIBITMAP*.


#compile "__FreeImage" ;;declares FIMG and FiBitmap. You can put this line in your init2 function, or in macros where used.
FI_ShowMoreErrorInfo ;;optional
