Use A program such as MS Paint to convert to .gif or .jpg
then Java can accept it.

You need to tell your program where to find the file.
I think that there are other image objects that you can use besides the icon object. It depends on what you are using.

Icon TrashIcon = new ImageIcon("c:\\TrashIcon.gif");

Then you add the Icon to the panel and set the size and location.

Which one do you want to display, bmp or jpg?
Java can only display JPG and GIF files. As rrz said, you have to convert your bmp to jpg/gif first.

To display an jpg/gif image, you can do something like this in your public void paint method (assume you are in an applet)

...
Image myimg = getImage(getCodeBase(), "images/mypic.jpg");
...
...
public void paint(Graphics g)
{
   g.drawimage(myimg, x, y, this);
}
//where x, y are the coordinates on the applet

I need to know how do I display a jpg on an AWT panel running under an application (not an applet), or how to extend applet instead of panel, but load the pannel in an application.

the comment given by "Simon Say" is for an applet. This code is for an application:

Toolkit tk = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit();
Image myimg = tk.getImage("c:/images/mypic.jpg");
...
...
public void paint(Graphics g)
{
  g.drawimage(myimg, x, y, this);
}
//where x, y are the coordinates on the panel
