    Exclamation Image loads in IDE but not when exported || creating reffered libary problem

    So i am making a basic game and i am loading the images as such :
    try {
    			background = ImageIO.read(new File(res/textures/bg.jpg"));
    			buildingManager.getButton().setCupcake_normal(ImageIO.read(new File("res/textures/cupcake normal.png")));
    			buildingManager.getButton().setCupcake_clicked(ImageIO.read(new File("res/textures/cupcake clicked.png")));
    		} catch (IOException e) {
    			e.printStackTrace();
    		}

    Alot of sites say i have to add the folder where the folders are in as an class folder. So i did that but i dont get the same icon with the folder. i get this instead : code.PNG

    Also i see the images inside the exported jar but they cant be reached, how do i fix this?

    Look into getClass.getResource(). Absolute or relative paths to files in your development environment aren't going to work when the project is moved to a .jar file.
