JimiSingleImageRasterEncoder encoder = new JimiSingleImageRasterEncoder();
JimiRasterImage raster = Jimi.createRasterImage(image.getSource());
Those are the two lines in my program.
It says for this statement:
JimiSingleImageRasterEncoder encoder = new JimiSingleImageRasterEncoder();
It cannot be instantiates.
What do I do?

Is JimiSingleImageRasterEncoder abstract?
Is there a constructor in your class that takes NO parameters?
If there are constructors that take parameters - the compiler will no longer automatically supply one that takes none.
