I have a panel. I select a gif/jpg/* Image file and display the Image on the Panel. Then I have a save button, thru which i have to save the image into a file.

To put it in clear words...I need to read an image from a file and write the image to another file.

Any Ideas.

A special download is available from Sun for other image extensions.
