Dear Rohit,

Here are some suggestions you can convert DWG to JPG/JPEG raster image:
Approach 1: Export
You can export DWG to bmp file or output the drawing in EPS (encapsulated PostScript) format, which can be edited with PhotoShop to improve the drawing's appearance.

Approach 2: Plot
supports many raster image formats, such as JPEG, TIFF, PNG, GIF, MNG, TAG, and PCX through the Plot command. we provide two optimized raster raster image plotter (JPEG, PNG)in our latest version ZWCAD 2009i.

Any question about using ZWCAD please feel free to let me know!Smile

You can't show an image in a command-line (console) window, which is
what it sounds like you're trying to do. The only way to do this is to
enter graphics mode or program a GUI application, like a Windows app.
Images are actually a pretty advanced topic in C++, unlike other
languages, such as Java or C#. And the way to enter graphics mode is
different for every operating system (unlike, again, with Java). You'll
have to find out how to enter graphics mode for the operating system
you're working in, which sounds like command-line Windows (or DOS) from
the tools you're using.

Also, unless you use a library of some kind, the process of reading and
displaying each kind of image format is different. All images contain
different header information and encoding techniques. So you'll have to
write one set of functions (e.g. in a class) for reading & writing
JPEG and another for handling GIF and so on.
