This creates an empty image which i'm filling with a mosaic pattern later on in the code.

This seems to work like a charm on my iMac using the latest OSX.
When i switch (bootcamp) to Windows 7, the transparency doesn't work (just opaque images).
Is there something i'm missing?

I'm using Java 1.7.0_03 on Windows 7 (64)

I hope someone can help me with this.

Thanks in advance

Here is a screenshot with the results im getting.

The effect making the pixels seem like mosaic is a second BufferedImage drawn over the first one (with the trees etc).

The window on the left is using the regular BufferedImage construction ( Whilst the window on the right is using the createCompatibleImage construction (
