Crop Image


is it possible to Crop an image in java? I'm sure it is, but my usual, useful, online, Java reference ( doesn't have code on how to CROP an image..

Unless this is suppose to do it:
What does scaling/shearing do?


Thanks in advance!

You can use CropImageFilter class, goes something like this:

  public Image cropImage(Image image, int x, int y, int width, int height)
    ImageProducer source = image.getSource();

    Image result = null;
    ImageFilter imageFilter = new CropImageFilter(x, y, width, height);
    ImageProducer imageProducer = new FilteredImageSource(source, imageFilter);
    result = createImage(imageProducer);

    return result;

Okay, I had a play already, and Object's method is the easiest to work with, so most points to him.. but all the solutions work, so I will split the points :-)
