How can you put a picture into a frame? I have tried the ImageIcon but it doesn't want to work for me?

Here is my code that SHOULD display a picture but it does not?

If anyone is able to help me it would be greatly apprecited!

You have to choose between AWT and Swing. It is generally recommended to not mix them. The ImageIcon and JLabel classes are both in the javax.swing package (see api).

If you choose AWT then this is one way to show an image.
Have you checked out Aspose?
