In this article, we will see how to add image to a window. The basic idea of doing this is first of all loading the image using QPixmap and adding the loaded image to the Label then resizing the label according to the dimensions of the image, although the resizing part is optional.

In order to use Qpixmap and other stuff we have to import following libraries: 

from PyQt5.QtWidgets import *
from PyQt5.QtGui import QPixmap
import sys

For loading image : 
Syntax : 

pixmap = QPixmap('image.png')

Argument : Image name if image is in same folder else file path. 
For adding image to label : 
Syntax : 


Argument : It takes QPixmap object as argument.

Code :  


# importing the required libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import *
from PyQt5.QtGui import QPixmap
import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # set the title
        # setting  the geometry of window
        self.setGeometry(0, 0, 400, 300)
        # creating label
        self.label = QLabel(self)
        # loading image
        self.pixmap = QPixmap('image.png')
        # adding image to label
        # Optional, resize label to image size
        # show all the widgets
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app
