Lol -just saw that you also asked for the area of the image to be set.

Something on these lines *might* help, although you'd need to work on controlling the button size, and making the appropriate changes to the JPEG reference of course, and the relative sizes you are looking for, but here is a basic demo class :

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.image.*;

 class PictureButton extends JFrame {

    public static void main(String[] args){

	PictureButton pb = new PictureButton();

	pb.setLayout(new BorderLayout());

	JButton jb = new JButton();
	pb.setSize(new Dimension(500,400));

	jb.setIcon(new ImageIcon(new ImageIcon("C:/persephone/Kore.jpg").getImage().getScaledInstance(60,60,Image.SCALE_SMOOTH)));
