Help with Scrollable Image please...

Hi there, I'm having a bit of a problem

I have a thumbnail of a photo on a form called Photo.java

When I click the thumbnail it opens a new form (DisplayPhoto.java) where I want to display the photo as it actual size. If the picture is to big, I want to be able to scroll the photo.

I have this so far:

I want to be able to load the photo from the path of the photo. How do I pass the path from Photo.java to DisplayPhoto.java? Also how will I make the image scrollable?

Any pointers will be greatly appreciated. If anything is not clear please let me know.

You can probably modify this to work for you.

Could you also just use an ImageIcon and put that in a JScrollPane? Or am I missing something?
