In the paint method of the Applet write the following code. where MyImage.jpg exists in the same directory where the applet is launched. You can even specify a path if the image file exists in other directory by getImage("\\Mydirectory\\MyImage.jpg");

Image img = getToolkit().getImage("MyImage.jpg");
g.drawImage(img, 0, 0, 615, 430, this);

ummm...i guess i wasn't clear enough in my question.. your code is good, and in fact looks a lot like what i have already written.  what i wanted was a way to include the graphics file in my project, as opposed to the file being a separate piece.

For me, I use the insert to add the image files to my project.
In Cafe, go to:
Insert -> files into project
choose files of type "net files", then select all the files you want
to include in your project and click on add.

not a file.  is that possible?

First of all, can you clarify what's the difference between using the bitmap
as a resource and a file? Do you mean you want to access the bitmap when
you compile but not when you generate the final archive? What would the
advantage be to referring the bitmap as a resource as opposed to a file?
I looked around in the help file but didn't see any specifications for adding a
resource, only individual files.

its something i am accustomed to doing in Visual C++, but apparently not possible in Visual Cafe.  its just a convenience of having the graphic in the project, as opposed to externally.
