I have a simple application that I want to distribute to colleagues. However, I'm having a few problems.
The app loaded an image in to an IconImage and displayed it in a JLabel. However, it seems to me that the IconImage isn't that great for rotating. So, I started looking at BufferedImage and then loading that into something like a Graphics object. However, I'm getting stuck with the concepts of casting between these objects and wouldn't mind if someone could point me in the right direction for the most efficient way of doing it (which objects to load the image file in to and then how to cast it in to a JLabel friendly object).
I have a lot of code - not sure if it's useful here, so I've pasted it in to a paste bin for brevity. At the moment, this is throwing errors to do with a BufferedImage being passed to a setPane method which only accepts an Image object. You don't have to correct my code, but just point me in the right direction of what objects to load it into and how to cast them - thanks.
