    Default Is this not how the drawImage works?

    I copied this right out of oracle almost. And yet it won't draw.

     ImageIcon salt = createImageIcon("icons/bathsalts.jpg");
         * @Override
        public void draw(Graphics g){
            Graphics2D g2d = (Graphics2D) g;
            g2d.drawImage(salt, getX(), getY(), null);
    Sorry it was a hasty post in frustration. I do not understand why draw image doesnt work for me. drawRect and circle are going just fine...
        protected static ImageIcon createImageIcon(String path) {
                java.net.URL imgURL = ButtonPanel.class.getResource(path);
                return new ImageIcon(imgURL);
            } catch(RuntimeException e) {
                System.out.println("Invalid file path");
            return null;

    Have you made any progress? If you still need help, please provide a complete program that we can compile and run to locate the error.
