    Default Loading an image in ImageView through code javafx

    I have built my application using scenebuilder for javafx. I have a form where a person has to upload an image. I used this code

     public void photoChooser(ActionEvent evt)
             System.out.println("photoChooser method is called");
             FileChooser fileChooser= new FileChooser();
             fileChooser.setTitle("Choose a file");
             File file = fileChooser.showOpenDialog(stagehere);
             if(file != null){
                 String img = file.toString();
                 //Image image = new ImageIcon(img);
                // String directory = "A://images//Images//041.JPG";
             //    image= new Image();
                 Image image = new Image(img);
                 } catch (Exception e) {System.out.println("Can't upload image " + e);}
               //  Im
                // employeeImage.setImage(image);
                 } catch(Exception e){System.out.println("Can't set the image" + e);}

    And I get this error
     photoChooser method is called
    Can't upload image java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Invalid URL: unknown protocol: a
