I didn't read over the entire thread completely, judt kind of skimmed it, but I dont see the issue with the first post.
A fourth of 263 is about 65.66, this times three is about 198 which is 6 pixels off of 204. So the image is scaled to just above 3/4 of the original height.

What he meant (or how I interpreted it) was that he wanted to get an image scaled to a button. He used getPreferredWidth/Height to scale the image to fit to the button. But when the button was placed into a manager/screen/whatever he was using it was resized and he basically needed to resize his image to fit in the new-ly sized button. I though he could do that with getWidth/Height and he said that it returned 0 so didn't really help.
That's the basic summery.
