Sorry I don't think you can avoid loading the whole image to scale it.

This should do exactly what you want

image = createImage(new FilteredImageSource(
image.getSource(), new CropImageFilter(x, y, w, h)));

where x, y, w, h defines the region you want

Hope this helps

That still requires the entire image to be loaded into memory.
