Getting height and width of image in Java

Yesterday I was working on something that requires manipulation of image for getting its properties. After searching over the internet I found a very intersting class on Java i.e ImageIO and BufferedImage class. These classes are good enough to manipulate images. there are many other claases also. But what I need i got it from these. I found many developers searching over internet for getting properties of image and there is no good small example for that. Thats why I thought why not creating a simple code to manipulate the image and help the developers. Here is the small code that helps to get the height and width of the image. Enjoy it!! import java.awt.image.BufferedImage; import; import; import javax.imageio.ImageIO; public class GetImage { public static void main(String[] args) { try { File f = new File("E:/Vinod/Docs/Pics/krishna_01.jpg"); BufferedImage image =; int height = image.getHeight(); in
