Can anyone give me idea how to read images from a file. To load the image in a frame we can use ToolKit, but I have to read the image. I read about JAI (Java Advanced Imaging), I am not sure about using it.

Foll code is used to load an image from a file.
Image im = getToolkit().getImage("imgFile.gif");
Let me know if you need anything else.
Hope it helps !!

Thanks for your reply. I have used Toolkit to load the image into the Frame. What I really want to know is how to get the details about the image, like getting the height, width.. of the image.
I agree. Here's the link:
