java.awt.image and pic morphing

Can someone suggest how one would go about this: I have a picture at a fine resolution that is of a fiber in a weave as in a schematic. I want to go to finer detail and then blur the image and end up with a finished product as in a woven label.  Any information on how to accomplish this feat? Thanx for your time its appreciated.
Regards,
Gary S. McKenzie

You need two things an image filter to fade your
image.  Image filters work like this:


import java.awt.image.*;

/**
 * A derivation of RGBImageFilter that turns an image
 * into its negative.<p>
 *
 * @version 1.0, January, 1997
 * @author  David Geary
 * @see     RGBImageFilter
 */
public class NegativeFilter extends RGBImageFilter {
    public NegativeFilter() {
        canFilterIndexColorModel = true;
    }
    public int filterRGB(int x, int y, int rgb) {
        DirectColorModel cm =
            (DirectColorModel)ColorModel.getRGBdefault();

        int    alpha = cm.getAlpha(rgb);
        int    red   = cm.getRed  (rgb);                                               int    green = cm.getGreen(rgb);
        int    blue  = cm.getBlue (rgb);

                red   = Math.abs(255 - red);
                green = Math.abs(255 - green);
                blue  = Math.abs(255 - blue );

                alpha = alpha << 24;
        red   = red   << 16;
        green = green << 8;

        return alpha | red | green | blue;
    }
}    

Once you've created the image filter you get the ImageProducer
from the image:

ImageProducer ip = image.getSource();

Then:

FilteredImageSource fis = new FilteredImageSource(ip, filter);

This applies the filter to the image.  

Image newImage = new Image(fis);

So, now you have a new image with the filter you need applied
to it to fade it (you'll have to tweak the filter).

For the magnify portion, you can use the drawImage method
of the Graphics class that allows you to size something.

g.drawImage(-20,-20,img.getWidth(null)*2, image.getHeight(null)*2, this);

This will start the image back in the frame by 20 pixels and
draw it twice as large as normal, this displays a magnified
portion.

Hope that helps,

-Tony
