Hello, it is not possible to put the image directly on the JFrame or on a JPanel. One way to make it is to set the image (should have good size)on a JLabel and when you add the JLabel it will appear as it is a background image. You can also add components over this image. This way you can achieve your requirement of background image to the JFrame.

Then you can set that panel as the content pane of the frame. Below is some code I had that shows how to do this:
