image distoration

I am zooming in and out of an image using
ImageIcon images2 = new ImageIcon(images[imageCount].getImage().getScaledInstance(width, height, Image.SCALE_SMOOTH));
Everything is working except after zooming in and out a couple of times the image starts getting distorated. Almost to the point that I can't even recognize the image.
Any ideas,

Are you scaling from your new image each time? You lose a little information each time you scale, so after a few iterations, that would cause visible distortion. The fix, if that's the problem, would be to scale from the original image each time, keeping track of the cumulative scaling factor.

I see your point. I'm scaling from the new "zoomed" image not the original image. Let me look into scaling from the original each time.
I agree. Here's the link:
