I'm developing an application that draw a shape over an image and then after clic a button, the application calculate all the points that are into the shape and paint it with the same color as the shape. I paint the shape in the paintComponent method. My problem is that performance of the application descends dramatically in the moment that have to repaint all this points. How can I increase the performance?
I have the rectangle that includes the shape and I use a byte to store the points (1 are into the shape, 0 are out).
And for painting the image in a different color, take a look at the class RGBImageFilter.

Thank's a lot for your replies.
I have two doubts: - In the shape I only have the points of the border of the shape. I have to find all the points of the interior of the shape, is in this process when the process is too slow. How can I use the setClip method to obtain the points of the interior? - Is possible to call paintComponent (with reapint) only when there are a change on the image. I've tried to do it, but then the shape is not ever repaint it, and disappears.
