    Default Using BufferedImage with JFrame

    I have an image inside my resource folder used by BlueJ that I want to paint onto the display area of my JFrame object. The issue I am having is copying the image data (i.e. "Grass.jpg") from my resource folder to a BufferedImage object. Then painting that BufferedImage object onto the JFrame.

    In essence: Image from Resource -> BufferedImage Object -> JFrame Paint.

    Suggested reading: Lesson: Working with Images (The Java™ Tutorials > 2D Graphics) ...a link that was one of the top hits for searching the internet 'java images'

    Instead of making assumptions on my ability to research a problem please be more constructive and less defaming. It would be much appreciated. I am currently reading a Java programming book that has solely 150 pages dedicated to Java 2D Graphics (animations, transformations, etc.), and images. So it is established that I am unable to grasp this concept as I have already tried. I don't need you to spoon feed me code, but I thought it would nice and simple enough for a experienced Java programmer to give me tidbits of advice or code to point me in the right direction, instead of throwing links at me. If you are to lazy to help me, do not waste my time or yours by copying and pasting a webpage address.

    Thanks and have a fantastic day.

    Two experienced programmers both give you great advice. This advice is based on how you can help yourself.

    There is an unlimited number of ways to do this, and asking "What have you tried" is an excellent question. What did you try? What problem did you have? What results did you get? We can not see your screen from our house... help us help you by providing the information necessary to give you more than a link if you want more than a link.

    Often replies to question reflect how the question was phrased. If you wish to ignore (or even take offense to) attempts to help, so be it. But they are what they are, attempts to help. Maybe describe further what problems you are having. What attempts you've made. Where exactly you are stuck

    Instead of making assumptions
    We have nothing other than make assumptions given the information initially provided. You mentioned nothing of what you've tried, what you know, or what your research told you and where you are confused.

    do not waste my time or yours by copying and pasting a webpage address.
    Sure thing. Hopefully someone else will help you along your way.

    Your question as stated is a bit unanswerable. You've described some of your goal, but not what's preventing you from getting to that goal. There are a million different ways to do something in programming, and you could be confused about a million different things. It's hard to answer "how do I do this" type questions other than to point you to google and to ask specifically what you're confused about.

    Your "question" is a bit like you saying "I want to get to New York. The issue I'm having is getting my car there." That's not enough information for somebody to help you- where are you leaving from? Are you experiencing car trouble? Is there an accident or road work blocking your way? We simply asked you for more detail so we can help you, but if that's not good enough for you, I wish you luck and will add you to my ignore list so as not to waste your time.

    I leave you with one more pasted webpage address, hopefully it is of some help to you: How to Program (stuck on homework? READ THIS BEFORE POSTING)
