I developing a GUI that contains several images. I need the images to be in oval shape(since they are overlapping each other).
I want to import into my application an image but only rectangle shape is available , is this possible to do parts of an image transparent (then I can to do the image oval and not rectangle)?

If you are using an image type that supports transparency ( like transparent GIFs ), then Java will recognize the transparency...

This should solve your problem... if not, I have some code to programmatically make an image transparent, but it's much easier to just use transparent GIFs...
