    Default Why isn't my program showing the image :(?

    I couldn't really figure out the easiest way to display an image. I tried the following way (in my code below), and it runs with no error but does not display the image. The image is called petergriffin lol. Sorry for all the other extra code, I am trying to build a little game. If you have any other easier recommendation for showing an image, please give me the code
    Here is my code
    Thanks for any and all help!

    Default Re: Why isn't my program showing the image :(?

    Just a quick glance because I'm working ..

        	BufferedImage petergriffin = null;
        	try {
        	    petergriffin = ImageIO.read(new File("Users/MW/Downloads/petergriffin.png"));
        	} catch (IOException e) {
        	}

    You are hiding any exceptions such as incorrect file path (which I almost guarantee you is the problem here). Print the stack trace at the very least:
        	BufferedImage petergriffin = null;
        	try {
        	    petergriffin = ImageIO.read(new File("Users/MW/Downloads/petergriffin.png"));
        	} catch (IOException e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
        	}
