SDL_image itself doesn't do scaling and rotation.  Just loading. :^)

Hehe :^)

Look into "setpixel()" and "getpixel()", a coupla chunks of demo code that
are floating around SDL's docs or FAQ...

That'll get you at the raw bits of a surface (regardless of its depth)
and then you can manipulate them all you want.

90-degree rotation is pretty trivial.  When you start doing zoom-in our -out,
it gets trickier, but it really ends up being only as complicated as you make
it (e.g., do you do interpolation, averaging, or just skip pixels?)

Hint: See Tux Paint ;)
