            GFGAppTheme {
                // A surface container using the 'background' color from the theme
                Surface(color = MaterialTheme.colors.background) {
                    // at below line we are calling 
                      // our function for button.
@Preview(showBackground = true)
fun DefaultPreview() {
    GFGAppTheme {
fun CircleImg() {
          // we are using column to align our imageview 
          // to center of the screen.
        modifier = Modifier.fillMaxWidth().fillMaxHeight(),
        // below line is used for specifying 
          // vertical arrangement.
        verticalArrangement = Arrangement.Center,
        // below line is used for specifying 
          // horizontal arrangement.
        horizontalAlignment = Alignment.CenterHorizontally,
        ) {
        // creating a card for creating a circle image view. 
            // below line is use to add size to our image view and 
              // test tag is use to add tag to our image. 
            modifier = Modifier.preferredSize(100.dp).testTag(tag = "circle"),
              // below line is use to 
              // add shape to our image view. 
            shape = CircleShape,
            // below line is use to add 
              // elevation to our image view. 
            elevation = 12.dp
        ) {
            // below line we are creating a new image.
                // in below line we are providing image
                  // resource from drawable folder. 
                imageResource(id = R.drawable.gfgimage),
                  // below line is use to give scaling
                  // to our image view.
                contentScale = ContentScale.Crop,
                  // below line is use to add modifier
                  // to our image view. 
                modifier = Modifier.fillMaxSize()

Now run your app and see the output of the app.
