Image viewer applet

This applet is your basic image viewer. Images are displayed in a resizable window, with scrollbars present only when they are warranted. Due to the well known problematic behavior of the Scrollbar class in some environments, I have designed the window's scrollbars myself. These lightweight components respond intuitively to the following user actions associated with updating the image: clicking on an arrow, clicking between the arrow and slider, clicking then dragging the slider to a new position.

To view an image, make a selection and double click on it. The image will be displayed once it has been completely downloaded; the time required will depend on your connection speed. Downloaded images can be manipulated by the user while other images are being tracked.
