What i would like to know is whether we can resize a picture on a canvas screen. I have an Image object. I display it on the canvas. Now when the user presses a button, i want the image to zoom in. Is there any way to zoom in the image.

There are ways to resize the image. However, you should note that the new image will not have a transparency background. It becomes an immutable image and if you had a transparency set before, it gets lost.

I don't remember the specific code to do this, but know that I got it here in this forum. So do a search above for "resize image" and I am sure you will find that thread.
