I recommend using DevIL (http://www.imagelib.org/) to load any image
(works with lot's of image types, on lot's of compilers and lot's of
AFAIK, it can load compressed BMP too...
What I don't know is how lo load the image into a SDL surface, since I
use it with OpenGL textures, but it's probably quite easy.
