Scaling BufferedImage?


Could anyone advice if there any java tools to created a scaled down version of an image contained with a BufferedImage.

I would like to create a thumbnail image, of the orginal and then write this thumbnail to a new file.

Thank you

Using the code in this example, do you think the thumbnail images would be all the same size?

Even if the orginal images were different sizes?
Try something like this.

     public static BufferedImage scale(BufferedImage bi){
         Image img = bi.getScaledInstance(100,-1,Image.SCALE_SMOOTH);
         int w = img.getWidth(null);
         int h = img.getHeight(null);
         BufferedImage scaled = new BufferedImage(w,h,BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_RGB);            
         Graphics2D g = scaled.createGraphics();
         if(g != null) g.dispose();
         return scaled;
