Hi, I have built a chess game, and I've got a GUI up and running,
but at the moment, I'm just using Strings for the pieces.
eg "q" for white queen, "Q" for black queen.
Does anyone know how to get jpg images inside a Java Frame.
Or failing that, I cud try drawing sum pieces.
Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi, Thanks very much. I've copied and pasted the code. I'm
pretty sure you need your import statements at the top. Anyway,
it works with these at the top, but I just have an empty frame.
Im not sure how the following bit works exactly:

Image imagem = new ImageIcon("a.jpg").getImage();

Where do I need to have the jpg image stored?
Is it in the same folder as the code?
I'm just gonna try it and see

Aha, I was right, I got a picture in the frame now, any Idea how to adjust the size, or is it better to do this outside of the program, and then just use a smaller picture?

maybe there's a better/simpler way of doing it, but i'd do the following:

imagine each square has 75x75 px
then each panel (for each pic/square) will size that too

then the problem will be in the layout so as to put 8 squares per row
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
