Java: Rotating Images

I need to be able to rotate images individually(in java). The only thing I have found so far is g2d.drawImage(image, affinetransform, ImageObserver ). Unfortunately, I need to draw the image at a specific point, and there is no method with an argument that 1.rotates the image separately and 2. allows me to set the x and y. any help is appreciated



This is how you can do it. This code assumes the existance of a buffered image called ‘image’ (like your comment says)

// The required drawing location
int drawLocationX = 300;
int drawLocationY = 300;

// Rotation information

double rotationRequired = Math.toRadians (45);
double locationX = image.getWidth() / 2;
double locationY = image.getHeight() / 2;
AffineTransform tx = AffineTransform.getRotateInstance(rotationRequired, locationX, locationY);
AffineTransformOp op = new AffineTransformOp(tx, AffineTransformOp.TYPE_BILINEAR);

// Drawing the rotated image at the required drawing locations
g2d.drawImage(op.filter(image, null), drawLocationX, drawLocationY, null);
