    Default How do I print pieces of an image in a frame?

    Hi, so I have a picture: testElf.jpg And i was wondering if anyone could tell me how to print different sections of the pixels on the image in a frame. Sort of like a puzzle. I was hoping to use graphics as its a sort of paint-like program except you draw the image instead of with a color. Any ideas?

    At high conceptual level, there are different approaches, at least 2:
    1) From the single image, create many distinct Image objects, each containing a specific rectangle of the original image. Then these images can be easily used in JLabel or JButton components. The splitting can be done using various approaches.
    2) Create a "custom" component (typically extending JComponent or JPanel) where each rectangle of the original image is drawn at any wanted location of the component. Use of this approach requires a good knowledge of the painting concepts in Swing.
