There's only one correct way.

If all you want to do is to display an image, the better way to do that is with JLabel and ImageIcon.

It will, if you use a layout manager correctly.

Unless of course, you want the image to be scaled to a certain size, which could be one interpretation of your rather vague post. IMO that's better achieved by extending ImageIcon than by custom painting.

Why don't you go through the entire Swing tutorial trail? Programming is so much more fun when you understand what you're doing.
