I've got a JFrame that draws an image, but as soon as the image is drawn, the window repaints. How do I force the image to remain drawn? The image is drawn in a method, and as soon as that method exits, the frame is emptied.

Share some code with us so we know what you are talking about.

Put the image drawing code in the paint() or paintComponent() method. If you're painting to the component anywhere else it won't be a lasting change (as you've found).

How do I override the paint method for only one JFrame? I might have forgotten to mention it in my first post, I've got two JFrames which will be visible at the same time, if I override paint, won't it paint the image over both frames?
As for code, I don't know if there is anything spectacular about it that will highlight my problem. What I do is create the image, then draw it on the JFrame jf_work using jf_work.drawImage(bi, 0, 0, this);

Subclass JFrame and use that to create one of your frames. Use a regular JFrame to create the other.

Guess I could use my Magic 8 Ball. . .
The answer is VERY DOUBTFUL
Make of it what you will.
