Dear All, I have 3-4 images which are to be overlapped. Infact I have 3-4 JLabels which have these images as their icon set. Now when i overlap them one image rectangular area covers the other images means this does not look transparent. Means if i properly put the one image over other only one is seen. I have tried with BufferedImage & Alpha-Composite etc but what happen with this if i make it total transparent(0.0) it becomes black (rectangle), if i make it total opaque(1.0) , it covers the other image. If i kept this value in between, some undesired background comes with image. Please help me out if you have even some idea. Thanks, Manoj
