well I am new to this so I am not sure how to get output in main method

public Image cropImage(Image img,int x, int y, int width, int height){

    Image image = createImage(new FilteredImageSource(image.getSource(), new CropImageFilter(x, y, width, height)));
    return image;

what should be the main method for this??? how do I see the cropped jpg image???  and how do i pass in jpg image
Make the above method static then:

public static void main(String[] args) {
      BufferedImage bi = FileInputStream("x.jpg"));
      // or use parameter
      //BufferedImage bi = FileInputStream(args[0]));
      Image i = cropImage(bi, 5, 5, bi.getWidth() - 10, bi.getHeight() - 10);

      JFrame f = new JFrame();
      f.getContentPane().add(new JLabel(new ImageIcon(i)));
