ALLEGRO_BITMAP *al_load_bitmap(const char *filename)
Introduced in 5.0.0

Loads an image file into an ALLEGRO_BITMAP. The file type is determined by the extension.

Returns NULL on error.

Note: the core Allegro library does not support any image file formats by default. You must use the allegro_image addon, or register your own format handler.
