Hi, I'm new here. And in my class we have been learning java with pictures and other media.
And so I'd like to contribute a BUNCH of manipulation methods for pictures.
I'm not sure if this is were I should post it, or even IF I should post it, I just want to contribute to anyone who is interested.
Sure, everything would be done much better in Photoshop, but where is the fun in that?
Also, I'm going to try to remove anything that is related to the class, but if there is anything in here that is class related, I apologize.
All of this is done in Dr. Java.

Oh! I almost forgot. For the last two methods, you need a blank white picture to 'draw' on. It has to be AT LEAST 640x480.

Too difficult a question for "beginning". Moving thread.

Without having the SimplePicture class this code doesn't do much good, though...

Huh, your right. I'm not sure where you can find it. I'm almost sure that is came with the material from the book though.

Ah, you're talking about this book: http://coweb.cc.gatech.edu/mediaComp-plan/101. That page actually has the missing class available for download.

Yesss. That would be the book. It isn't too bad to learn from. I am studying one other book (How to Program Java 4th Ed. By Deitel). And I prefer the latter, simply because it makes you think more for yourself. But, learning using multimedia works pretty well.

But, I was just trying to contribute to a good, helpful site.

Don't use a Deitel book older than 6th edition.

Because they were printed before the new threading API, before generics, before auto-boxing and before the enhanced for loop, etc.

So, you are basically saying that the books are now 'outdated'?

The 5th edition of Deitel and Deitel was outdated 6 years ago.

Heh. O.O

So, I'm guessing learning out of the fourth ed. isn't any better?

True. But the things you learn won't necessarily be wrong (except for some of the more detailed Thread stuff). You would definitely need something newer which covers Java 5&6 as a supplement to what you get from these older books.

You can get the 6th edition at Amazon from $8.40. But it is better if you go via our books page and let us get the payment for linking to Amazon

Hey, can you please remove this thread from the site? It falls under people being lazy and cheating, which wasn't my goal. I was just trying to contribute. :/
