    Default How do I deal with this error

    My goal is to try to make 6 copies of this one picture. However, I am running into this error....
    Cannot find symbol
    symbol : method getPixel (int,int)

    Do you have any suggestions for how I can change this .this to make it compile?

    import java.awt.*;
    import java.awt.font.*;
    import java.awt.geom.*;
    import java.awt.image.BufferedImage;
    import java.text.*;
    import java.util.*;
    import java.util.List;

    public class P3
    public void copyButterfly()
    String sourceFile =
    Picture sourcePicture = new Picture (sourceFile);
    Pixel sourcePixel = null;
    Pixel targetPixel = null;
    //loop through the columns
    for (int sourceX = 0, targetX = 0;
    sourceX < sourcePicture.getWidth();
    sourceX++, targetX++)
    //loop through the rows
    for (int sourceY = 0, targetY = 0;
    sourceY < sourcePicture.getHeight();
    sourceY++, targetY++)
    //set the target pixel color to the source pixel color
    sourcePixel = sourcePicture.getPixel(sourceX,sourceY);
    targetPixel = this.getPixel(targetX,targetY);
    return sourcePicture;

    The error message is pretty straight-forward. The class Picture does not have a method getPixel(...) that takes two int parameters. So you'll have to look at the API for the Picture class to see just what public methods you may use.
