ima is an Image, not an Icon. Check out what methods your "icon" variable has, then use that variable in the call to setIcon.
This would have been easier to find out if you would have posted the error as I has asked you. Now I'm actually guessing this is the problem (but it probably is).

ima is an Image. image is a JLabel. It's setIcon method requires an Icon. Is Image compatible with Icon? I don't think so. Is there some class or object that is? Yes there is, and you even have an instance of that: icon.
Can you find a method of icon that allows you to change its image? I'm sure you can. Once you've done that I'm sure you'll be able to set the Icon of image. After all, you then have an Icon with the cropped image.
