Hi all,
I have a .GIF image, with transparent areas on it. I also have a BufferedImage.
I would like to import and add the .GIF image on top of the BufferedImage some how.. :o\
Making sure that the transparent cells on the .GIF are also transparent after placed on top of the BufferedImage..

Can this be done?? Any examples would be MUCH appreciated! :D

Thanks in advance!

Hi CEHJ -- sorry about the delay.

So, your above code will draw only the 'opaque' cells ontop of the BI?

Also, how do I then turn the 'Graphics g' to an image?
Would something like this work:  Image ii = new Image( g );  // ?????

(Soz for my ignorance)

Thanks alot, :)

Should do, if you've got a gif with transparency

>>Also, how do I then turn the 'Graphics g' to an image?

What do you want to do - produce a file, or what?
