    Default help noob with no clue what this error is (can't compile)

    I am wondering if anyone can help me, I'm having the hardest time getting a program to compile. I'm beginning to think I've downloaded the incorrect version of turtle graphics. This symbol looks foreign and I'm unsure how to find a solution. I have fixed some of the errors since this last picture but I will write out my code. The program takes a photo and converts to gray scale then to sepia

    import images.APImages;
    import images.Pixel;
    import java.util.Scanner;

    public class sepia{

    public static void main(String [] args){

    Scanner reader = new Scanner(System.in);
    System.out.print("Enter image file name to continue: ");
    String fileName = reader.nextLine();
    APImages theOriginal = new APImages(fileName);
    int width = theOriginal.getWidth();
    int height = theOriginal/getHeight();
    APImages numba2 = theOriginal.clone();
    Pixel oldPixel = theOriginal.getPixel(x, y);
    Pixel rightPixel = theOriginal.getPixel(x, y - 1);
    Pixel bottomPixel = theOriginal(x - 1, y);
    int red = numba2.getRed(average);
    int green = numba2.getGreen(average);
    int blue = numba2.getBlue(average);
    int average = ( red + green + blue)/3;
    for(int y = 0; y < height; y++)
    for(int x = 1; x < width; x++){
    if(red < 63){
    red = (int)(red * 1.1);
    blue = (int)(blue * 0.9);
    else if(red < 192){
    red = (int)(red * 1.15);
    blue = (int)(blue * 0.85);
    red = Math.min(int(red * 1.08), 255);
    blue = (int)(blue * 0.93);

    //end main

    So any feedback any criticism is better then none whatsoever. I wouldn't normally ask but I have had very little success finding little to no java tutorials usually just python and c++.

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.

    Also copy the full text of the error messages and paste it here.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
