Thank you,

We need to see some code. I don't see the problem you describe in the
code below. Are you using AWT?

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.awt.image.*;
import javax.swing.*;

public class test2 extends JPanel {
     private JLabel l;

     public test2() {
         super(new GridBagLayout());

         GridBagConstraints c = new GridBagConstraints();

         setPreferredSize(new Dimension(240,180));
         try {
             // use blue.png if you want to see the image
             URL url = new URL("");
             ImageIcon icon = new ImageIcon(url);
             l = new JLabel(icon);
         } catch (MalformedURLException murle) {


     public static void main(String[] args) {
         EventQueue.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
             public void run() {
                 JFrame f = new JFrame("test2");
                 test2 t2 = new test2();
