Example code for loading images.
import javafx.scene.image.Image; // load an image in background, displaying a placeholder while it's loading // (assuming there's an ImageView node somewhere displaying this image) // The image is located in default package of the classpath Image image1 = new Image("/flower.png", true); // load an image and resize it to 100x150 without preserving its original // aspect ratio // The image is located in my.res package of the classpath Image image2 = new Image("my/res/flower.png", 100, 150, false, false); // load an image and resize it to width of 100 while preserving its // original aspect ratio, using faster filtering method // The image is downloaded from the supplied URL through http protocol Image image3 = new Image("http://sample.com/res/flower.png", 100, 0, false, false); // load an image and resize it only in one dimension, to the height of 100 and // the original width, without preserving original aspect ratio // The image is located in the current working directory Image image4 = new Image("file:flower.png", 0, 100, false, false);
