Hello Android Experts,

I want to bring in an image (.png) file into Android that I created using Photoshop, which Drawable folder do I place the image in using Eclipse?

Also, I have an external XML file I need to import for parsing to display the data using a Listview, where do I place that file?

Thank you!

Make a resources folder at the root of the package tree and put them in there

Starting at the root directory of your project, the xml goes in the directory
/res/xml

and your images go in
/res/drawable-hdpi.

If you are using them as raw data, put them in
/res/raw.
