URGENT:Changing Pixels within an image at run-time

Hi,
In my code, I am using an image of size 200*200. At run-time, I am calculating new values for a pixel, and need to change a few of the pixels. So, on my display, I only want to change the values of the changed pixels instead of drawing the entire image again. How can I do it in Java. What are the data types will i have to use?

This is an extremely urgent question. I need an answer as soon as possible.

Thanks,

You can use a PixelGrabber to get the pixels:

You can also work with an ImageFilter:

If I have my Image on a form, how do I reflect the changes on the image? I do not want to redraw the entire form. using Pixel grabber or ImageFilter, I can change the array values, but how do i reflect these changes on screen?

thanks

Use a BufferedImage, it allows you to change individual pixel values.
Then call repaint() on the component displaying the image to show changes on screen.

eg. if the image was painted at the origin of your component and you wanted to change the pixel at 10, 10:

mybufferedimage.setRGB(10, 10, rgb);
repaint(10, 10, 1, 1);

If you want to use a BufferedImage, the easiest way to get one is:

BufferedImage image = ImageIO.read(new File("x.jpg"));
