    Did you search on the web about this. All you have to read about ImageIcon, and layouts. Read API for more details.

    First create a ImageIcon to the image you want. Then create a JLabel with adding that ImageIcon, there is an overloaded method to add an image into a label. Get the layered pane, getLayedPane() and add that label into that. That's all.

    Put some effort and get back here if you stuck with something. But put some effort first. I've given all what you need.
