This is a pretty basic question. How do I add an image (for example: title.png), to a panel?

I mean, I wish I could just do this:

JLabel has a constructor which accepts an image.
You can constructor a JLabel with the image and then add the label to the parent.

Looks like the path used for the ImageIcon is not correct- why is a "cd" there in the path?

I didn't know where to put the pictures so saying "cd Desktop" just like in the cmd line brings you to the desktop. I use packages so where would be the best place to put it if my packages are com.divinesouls.firstscreen

Put the images in the same file as the class files, then use getClass().getResource("Tic Tac Toe Title.png") to get a URL you can use in the ImageIcon constructor.
