    Post Does anyone know how to display an image from a file on your screen?

    I am making a game and am tired of jsut using shapes such as rectangles and other things. Does anyone know how to put in your own files as images onto a JFrame? If you do then please teach me how to set it up and what parameters it takes and other things I need to know about it. Here is what I have done so far but it didn't work.
    package galaga;
     
    import java.awt.Graphics;
    import java.awt.Image;
    import java.awt.image.ImageObserver;
     
    import javax.swing.ImageIcon;
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
    import javax.swing.JPanel;
     
    public class HELPME extends JFrame {
    	ImageIcon worthless = new ImageIcon("CRAPPYSPACESHIP.png");
    	Image SHIP = worthless.getImage();
     
    	JFrame HELPME = new JFrame();
    	JPanel bob = new JPanel();
     
    	public HELPME() {
    			super("Title");
    			setVisible(true);
    			setSize(400, 400);
     
    	}
    	public void paint(Graphics g) {
     
    		g.drawImage(SHIP, 100, 200, 50, 90, ImageObserver );
    	}
     
    }

    I wrote ImageObserver because I don't know what it is. If anyone tries to help me it will be much appreciated!
