class imagePanel extends JLabel {
//private PlanarImage image;

private BufferedImage buffImage = null;

private void drawFingerImage(int nWidth, int nHeight, byte[] buff) {
buffImage = new BufferedImage(nWidth, nHeight, BufferedImage.TYPE_BYTE_GRAY);
buffImage.getRaster().setDataElements(0, 0, nWidth, nHeight, buff);
Graphics g = buffImage.createGraphics();
g.drawImage(buffImage, 0, 0, 140, 150, null);
g.dispose();
repaint();
}

public void paintComponent(Graphics g) {
g.drawImage(buffImage, 0, 0, this);
}
}


I have this

Answer

you need the help of setClip() method as mentioned here and here.

when it comes to code it should look like this

public class OvalImageLabel extends JLabel {

    private Image image;

    public OvalImageLabel(URL imageUrl) throws IOException {
        image = ImageIO.read(imageUrl);
    }

    public void paintComponent(Graphics g) {

        super.paintComponent(g);

        g.setClip(new java.awt.geom.Ellipse2D.Float(0f,0f, getWidth(),getHeight()/2));
        g.drawImage(image, 0, 0, this);

    }
}

and a running application that using this class

public class UsageExample extends JPanel {

    public UsageExample() {
        super(new BorderLayout());
        OvalImageLabel l;
        try {
            l = new OvalImageLabel(new File("/path/to/image.png").toURI().toURL());
        } catch (Exception e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
            return;
        }

        add(l, BorderLayout.CENTER);
    }

    private static void createAndShowGUI() {
        JFrame frame = new JFrame();
        frame.setContentPane(new UsageExample());
        frame.setSize(200, 200);
        frame.setVisible(true);
    }

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        javax.swing.SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
            public void run() {
                createAndShowGUI();
            }
        });
    }
}
