Importing images using Swing

This is probably quite a simple one:
For the program I'm writing I need to import a jpeg image and draw on top of it.
The problem is that I can't find any way to do this in swing - I know it's simple in applets, but don't even know how to import the image when using swing!
Please help!

Get the image using:
Image image = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().createImage("etc.jpg");
Alternatively, you can use an image icon like this:
ImageIcon ii = new ImageIcon("etc.jpg");
Image image = ii.getImage();
Thats only available in Swing.
