Suppose i have an image in a Panel. On clicking the Image some event occurs . How can I make the Image appear clickable to the User like say projected out or any others.   meaning if the user sees the screen he should feel that the image is clickable.
I am using AWT only.

Maybe put a raised etchedBorder on the Panel. That should make it look more like a button?

Or even better, a blue border similar to those hyperlinsk you see in your browser, with a rollover effet that changes the colour.

I think etchedBorder is provided by swing . I am not using swing , just plain AWT .

Correct me if I am wrong.

You could use a JEditorPane, with the contents being html with the image defiend as a link:

One thing is you can give a border to that image,

put the image in the panel, set the background colour to blue or black,

in the paint method,
give  (Graphics) g.drawImage ( image, 2,2,width,height,this ) ;

you will get a border on the left and the top,

to get the border on the othersides, add component listener to this panel,

implement the componentResized() method,
in that  get the size of the panel and set the size of the image sightly less than the panel size.
