I need to overlay text onto a jpeg file then save the combined effect into one jpeg file. Can this be done with Image and Graphics classes? I am not having much luck.

You might want to check out the Java Jpeg Encoder at: http://www.obrador.com/essentialjpeg/jpeg.htm
Once you've got a Graphics object or Image with the desired graphics and text, you can use the JpegEncoder to write it to a Jpeg. There are also Gif encoders available (see www.acme.com), although technically you need a license from Unisys if you plan on using the gif encoding algorithm in your program.
