Those don't match, do they?

And please uncomment that line, you need that call.

1. Don't know what the Timer is used for, so get rid of it.
2. Don't know why you have a paint() method. An ActionListener doesn't use this method.

Start with the basics and use a JLabel to display an Image. See the section from the Swing tutorial on How to Use Icons for an example.

The adress of the image in the hard drive is actually the one in code that is: "D:/images.jpg", I pasted the wrong address("D:/boy.png") by mistake.
and i have Uncommented the call to super.paint(g) method. But its still not showing the image.



The modified code is as following:

The frame your showing and the frame with the image are not the same.
