GDI stands for Graphic Device Interface.
Windows GDI+ is a class-based API for C/C++ programmers.

It enables applications to use graphics and formatted text on both the video display and the printer.

Applications based on the Microsoft Win32 API do not access graphics hardware directly. Instead, GDI+ interacts with device drivers on behalf of applications.

If you are not using an ancient Windows version, GDI+ is already present on your system. Use GDI+ at MSDN[^] as a starting point.
