Yes, take a look at the code in <fpc>/packages/fcl-image/src/ and in
more detail the fpimage, fpimgcanv units. You will probably replace
TBitmap with TFPImageCanvas.

Also take a look at the <fpc>/packages/fcl-image/examples/ files for
example of usage.

You can also use something like AggPas which is much faster than
FPImage, and has a lot more graphics capabilities. It is also
independent of GUI toolkits, so you can use it in a Console of CGI app
for example. The API is a little harder to learn than FPImage though.
