    1.) Get the image first
    2.) get a lightweight container
    3.) override paintComponent
    4.) paint the image that you called

    im not sure if this is what you want

    See
    Lesson: Working with Images (The Java™ Tutorials > 2D Graphics)
    How to Use Icons (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Using Swing Components)
    And you might want to do something about that signature....the all caps and animated flashing animation is beyond annoying (and could detract people from actually replying to your posts)

    ImageIcon pic = new ImageIcon("Filename.extension");
    		panel.add(new JLabel(pic));
    this.setVisible(true);

    This should work.

    This should work.
    import javax.swing.ImageIcon;
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
    import javax.swing.JLabel;
    import javax.swing.JPanel;
     
    public class Class2 extends JFrame
     
    {
    	   public static void main(String[] args) {
    	        new Class2();
    	   }
     
    	public Class2()
    	{
     
    	this.setSize(300, 300);
        this.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
        this.setTitle("ImageTest");
        JPanel panel = new JPanel();
     
        JLabel label = new JLabel("ImageTest");
        panel.add(label);
        ImageIcon pic = new ImageIcon(Class2.class.getResource("ProgressBar000.png"));
        panel.add(new JLabel(pic));
     
        this.add(panel);
        this.setVisible(true);
    	}
    }

    Make sure the program has access to the file.ie put it in the projects bin folder.

    @DusteroftheCentury: Though you are trying to help others and that's why this community is but spoon feeding is one of the violations of the Forums rules if you read the rules.

    i asked for help
    i understand your part, i've been on that before, and up to now i still crave for exact answers for my problems, the term "Spoon feeding" was not yet , i can say implemented way back ago when i was on my very beginning of Java Programming, i got answers by code. I became inactive for years, when i got back, rules are strictly implemented including the Spoon feeding, i was thinking same as you are, "i just need answers(CODES) why CANT you give it?" thats the help that i need", but when i read the rules, i realize that, its better to solve your problems on your own, being a programmer its not like solving anything in an instant nor all at the same time, everything is step-by-step.

    think of this, "I want to learn integral calculus! give some example please!", if you dont even know how to add 1 + 1 or anything like advanced math like polynomials, how would you be able to solve that calculus? the point is, start from start dont start at the middle, if they give codes, would you be able to understand it all? what if you encounter a bug? a syntactical error? would be able to debug it on your own? I bet you WONT(Thats what i suffered when i got codes(Spoon Fed) even by our fellow professional forum mates) Because of the rules against spoon feeding , i learned how to be resourceful, google became my bestfriend, if i need codes, google can provide me, then if he doesnt, ill think of another solution, whats the benefit? i learned another thing,
    "Resourcefulness"

    ill give you an idea, your problem is "how to add picutres in JFrame", try to type it in google, exactly those words, he will throw you LOTS of references, when i say LOTS, its ALOT, and ill bet, one reference that google will gave you will refer to this site's tutorials and code snippets

    I Asked "can someone give me a basic on how to add it"
    you said the word "Basic", google can still provide you codes for that, you know the word basic, then you should start from there,


    i even got a problem right now, i dont have any big projects yet, so i decided to solve all available sorting algorithms that i know, i started with QuickSort, instead of asking the forums, "how to QuickSort", i typed in google, "QuickSort Algorithm procedure", and Boom! google gave tons of references, Codes, guides, pseudocode. At first glance, i dont understand the codes that im seeing, so i decided, to solve the Sorting by following the procedure, STEP-BY-STEP, and now im almost done, by trying to solve it in 5 days T_T, atleast, i can understand the flow of the algorithm, i even saw the Loopholes of the guides, it doesnt even state some of the important details. I even learned the term "PIVOT", the median-of-three, how to get it, the importance, things like that. After i finish it, its time to ask some here, if the thing that i did is efficient, then that s the time to take advantage of ONE OF the importance of forums.

    i hope you understand my point, english is not my native language, so im getting some problems expressing my thoughts, but i think its enough for you to understand it.

    please read this, youll enjoy this article
