Create a class JImageComponent and do your own drawing of the image. That way you control the size of the component.

ImageIcon icon = new ImageIcon(image.getScaledInstance(requiredWidth, requiredHeight, Image.SCALE_SMOOTH));

Use a transform when you paint your image.

AffineTransform scale = AffineTransform.getScaleInstance(xscale, yscale);
g2d.setTransform(scale);
g2d.drawImage(image, 0, 0, null);
