#StackBounty: #image #scala #jvm How to create a black and white image of arbitrary size

Bounty: 50

I want to create an arbitrary large image consisting solely of black and white pixel. I am currently using BufferedImage. This, however, hits a hard limit at 65500 Pixel.

Exception in thread "main" javax.imageio.IIOException: Maximum supported image dimension is 65500 pixels
    at java.desktop/com.sun.imageio.plugins.jpeg.JPEGImageWriter.writeImage(Native Method)
    at java.desktop/com.sun.imageio.plugins.jpeg.JPEGImageWriter.writeOnThread(JPEGImageWriter.java:1007)

How can I create an image of arbitrary size?

Bonus points: As the image is only black and white an efficient data format would be great.

Get this bounty!!!
