I want to create an image icon, but not from a jpg or gif file. Rather, I have a 2d array of bytes that I want to display on a canvas.
ImageIcon has a constructor that takes byte[] but only if that array was "read from an image file containing a supported image format".
Is there a way to do this?

By the way, where did u get the 2D array of bytes? Is it sure that the array you have represents a certain kind of ImageIcon? If not, even tough we construct an ImageIcon using that array, we will not be able to see the icon...
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
