Hello Paul,

Thanks for your suggestion... My point of view:

I have done some Java but not in a while. Other than this scaleImage()  
thing, it took me all of a few hours to get my program working  
perfectly using C++/OSG, and I suspect once I know how to create a  
pbuffer, it will all be working in 15 minutes or less. So I don't  
really see the point in spending a day or more refreshing my knowledge  
of Java for this one project.

OSG has a built-in imaging API... And it's my language of choice these  
days. ;-)

Granted, it's limited, but it does what I need. If I need more, I'll  
go write a perl script using ImageMagick which in retrospect would  
probably have been quicker and more customizable anyways... Oh well.

All this to say I agree with the point you make, but now I suspect I'm  
about 15 minutes away from my goal if I can just get a windowless  
OpenGL context! :-)
