Replace photo in "docx" with an image by resizing the image to the size of photo

Code : for (Shape shape : (Iterable) shapesToDelete){
BufferedImage originalImage = ImageIO.read(new File(filePath));
int height = (int) Math.round(shape.getHeight());
int width = (int) Math.round(shape.getWidth());
Image rescaled = originalImage.getScaledInstance(width, height, BufferedImage.SCALE_SMOOTH);
BufferedImage resizedImage = new BufferedImage(width, height, BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_RGB);
Graphics2D g = resizedImage.createGraphics();
g.drawImage(rescaled, 0, 0,width, height, null);
ByteArrayOutputStream baos = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
ImageIO.write( resizedImage, “png”, baos );
byte[] imageInByte = baos.toByteArray();
baos.flush(); ExpectedOutput.png (43.6 KB)
Output.png (41.9 KB)


I want to replace the photo in the shape with the image in the filePath.
I am getting the output as in Output.png and the expected output is in ExpectedOutput.png
