Do you use Toolkit.getDesfultToolkit().getImage(String)? if so you should also have a MediaTracker that keeps track if the image has been loaded or not.


try{
MediaTracker track=new MediaTracker(myComponent);
track.addImage(1,myImage);
track.waitForAll();
} catch (InterruptedException e) {}

If you can, use ImageIO.read(getClass().getResource("/yourimage.jpg")) to load images without requiring a MediaTracker. The only constraint here is that for an applet, you might have to put the images in the same JAR file as the code (I'm not sure if I recall this correctly though).
