Is there any faster method than Applet.getImage()?
I'm writing an applet that displays images like a gallery, but I find Applet.getImage() a bit slow. Each of my image is about 100k or (800x600) so I know it will take time. But it is relatively slower than the speed of a Browser.
Size of image is important for quality wise, so is there any other way? Thought about using BufferedReader to read in stream then construct the image, would this be faster?
