Hi all, I am new here and pretty new to handling images in Java, as I am merely a student at university. However after several days looking I have turned here for help. I have been given the task to construct a compressor program for 3 images with the file extension PNG (.png). I have the actual code for the compression, but for it to work, I need to load the images in Java and then convert it into a binary (ie each pixel to the binary representation for it), file (or array) to input into the compressor. I have seen a lot of code on the internet and a lot are very complex, and I am merely looking for the very basic code to do it, and maybe if possible an explanation to go with it, or even better the algorithm of how it works. Any help here would be great,
