    Dunno about adding the image, but I think this might help your location problem:

    Do search for SpringLayout

    To add an image to a swing component simply create a new label without any text and use setIcon(Icon) to set its icon.

    Try this,

    import javax.swing.*;
    import javax.swing.ImageIcon;
    import javax.swing.SwingConstants;
     
    public class sample
    {
    	public static final int WIDTH=1000;
    	public static final int HEIGHT=680;
     
    	public static void main(String[]args)
    	{
    		JFrame myWindow=new JFrame();
    		myWindow.setSize(WIDTH,HEIGHT);
    		myWindow.getContentPane().setLayout(null);
    		JLabel myLabel=new JLabel("MY PICTURE GALLERY");
                    myLabel.setIcon(new ImageIcon("c:/help_icon.PNG"));
    		myLabel.setHorizontalTextPosition(SwingConstants.LEFT);//To change the text positon
    		myLabel.setBounds(450,10,350,20);//Setting Bounds
    		myWindow.getContentPane().add(myLabel);
    		myWindow.setVisible(true);
    		}
    }
