you'll need to resize them before assinging them to your buttons.

Image i = icon.getImage();
Image scaled = i.getScaledInstance(width, height, Image.SCALE_SMOOTH);
ImageIcon resized = new ImageIcon(scaled);

Image i = icon.getImage();

objects, got an error with this line..

 icon is not public in java.awt.Frame; cannot be accessed from outside package at line 33, column 13
I placed this line with my declarations..do I need to move it?
