I'm using a JLabel to display an image.  I am attempting to use the getScaledInstance method of Image but to no avail.  The images return as their original size.  Ultimately, what I need to do is get the height and width of the image, determine how much bigger (or smaller) it is than the applet display area, and resize it accordingly.  

Here's my code:

    public void init()
    {
        btnNext = new JButton(">>");
        btnNext.addActionListener(this);
        btnNext.setActionCommand("NEXT");

        btnPrev = new JButton("<<");
        btnPrev.addActionListener(this);
        btnPrev.setActionCommand("PREV");

        pnlSouth = new JPanel();
        pnlSouth.setLayout(new GridLayout(1,2));
        pnlSouth.add(btnPrev);
        pnlSouth.add(btnNext);

        image = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getImage("fighters_a10_0008.jpg");
        image.getScaledInstance(100,100 ,Image.SCALE_FAST);
        icon = new ImageIcon(image);

        lblPic = new JLabel();
        lblPic.setIcon(icon);

        pnlCenter = new JPanel();
        pnlCenter.add(lblPic);

        setLayout(new BorderLayout());
        add (pnlCenter, BorderLayout.CENTER);
        add (pnlSouth, BorderLayout.SOUTH);
    }

It all works except for the getScaledInstance method.  What pray-tell am I doing wrong?

TIA

DO it like this instead

ImageIcon icon = new ImageIcon("fighters_a10_0008.jpg");
Image image = icon.getImage();
Image scaledImage = image.getScaledInstance(100,100 ,Image.SCALE_FAST);

Doesn't the ImageIcon have to be loaded with the scaledImage?

Well i wasn't sure where the scaled bit came in - trying to get you out of a potential synch loading gotcha, but try it like this first:

image = image.getScaledInstance(100,100 ,Image.SCALE_FAST);

...but if you still find problems then (using first idea):

ImageIcon icon = new ImageIcon("fighters_a10_0008.jpg");
Image image = icon.getImage();
Image scaledImage = image.getScaledInstance(100,100 ,Image.SCALE_FAST);
icon.setImage(scaledImage);

This is what I do:

private void updatePicture(ImageIcon imageIcon) {
        if (imageIcon==null) return;
        Image img = imageIcon.getImage();
        Dimension d = getScaledSize(imageIcon);
        JLabel imageLbl = new JLabel( new ImageIcon(
            img.getScaledInstance(d.width, d.height, Image.SCALE_SMOOTH) ) );
        imageLbl.setBounds(0, 0, d.width, d.height);
        imagePanel.removeAll();
        imagePanel.add(imageLbl);
        imagePanel.revalidate();
        imagePanel.repaint();
}

private Dimension getScaledSize(ImageIcon image) {
        double imageRatio =
            (double)image.getIconWidth() / (double)image.getIconHeight();
       
        if ( imageRatio > 1.0)
            return new Dimension( MAX_IMG_WIDTH,
                                  (int)(((double)MAX_IMG_HEIGHT)/imageRatio) );
        else
            return new Dimension( (int)(((double)MAX_IMG_WIDTH)*imageRatio),
                                  MAX_IMG_HEIGHT );
}

I was too late.
Don't forget you probably want to scale proportionally.
cf. My code
