    Hi all,

    Im kinda new both to java and this forum.. but am very intrested in learning java..

    So i was thinking about colors in java and was wondering what kinda colors are regonised by java..

    found this java.awt.color.. which goes very indepth with transparancy(alpha) and other formats of colors..

    Question:

    I wanne make a programm in java that breaks up a picture(pixels) and put it together again..

    Storing values of the colors and so forth...

    Welcome to the forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code in code or highlight tags and other useful info for new members.

    Graphics manipulation, modification, steganography, etc. in any language are intermediate to advanced topics, not the sort of projects I'd recommend to someone "kinda new" to a language. There are many tutorials available on the 'net that cover these topics, and you could find them and work through those, but I recommend you complete a few months of basic Java study first.

    Starting a project that is significantly above your abilities or for which you haven't laid a solid foundation of the basics on which to build the necessary new skills are sure recipes for failure that will ultimately put you off programming and cause you to doubt your aptitude. I can't guarantee that everyone has the aptitude for programming (in fact, I think some don't), but give yourself a chance for success by gaining a thorough understanding of the basics first.

    A great place to start is with the Oracle Tutorials.

    Good luck!

    If you are sure you are ready for intermediate Java studies, then
    I would advise Googling Java Swing/AWT tutorials. There are many
    of them online and randomly selecting one and posting the link for
    you may not do you any benefit as you may have your own
    criteria. It is best to search the many different options available to
    you and chose a beginning one you feel comfortable with.
