You can use class javax.imageio.ImageIO to load and save images in different image file formats.

Serialization is required so that the objects can be written to streams of bytes.Image by itself are binary so no need to serialize.If just sending to any outputstream is the concern then you can use that as it is.But if you want to strialize as object then you may read to bytes of image to object and serialize that.
