I'm trying to make a JLabel with an image fade in from transparent to fully visible.
Is this possible with the JLabel itself or would I have to change the Image?
If I'd have to change the Image's opacity how would I do this?

Thanks

Here is some old code I found on the web that shows one way to do this:


Use the slider to change the opacity of the foreground image.

Thanks, works well.
Sorry to bother, but how would I make a loop to increase the value of alpha from 0 to 1 manually without a slider?

Use a Swing Timer.
