Jerry's Java Image Processing Pages
A long time ago, I wrote an image editor in Java together with a set of image processing filters for doing fun things with images. I got a lot of email about the filters asking questions about how to do various things and I decided it would be a good idea to write some articles on the subject in the hope that people will stop asking me things, or at least ask me different things.
These pages were first written in the days of Java 1.1, since when, a lot has happened including the introduction of a new image processing model (BufferedImage) and the Java Advanced Imaging API. The original filters have now been completely rewritten as BufferedImageOps to avoid the performance problems associated with ImageFilters. I don't support the old versions any more.
