I want this; When I double click the image the it should go to the label.:(name is LabelPicture)
int returnValue = jFileChooser1.showOpenDialog(this);
    if (returnValue == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION) {
        File file = jFileChooser1.getSelectedFile();
            try {
                BufferedImage img =;
            } catch (IOException ex) {
                Logger.getLogger(AddNewInstructor.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
    } else {
        //Do what you want to do when user doesn't upload anything

    int returnValue = jFileChooser1.showOpenDialog(this);//Crate a filechoser

if (returnValue == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION) {
    File file = jFileChooser1.getSelectedFile();//Get the file
    ImageIcon icon = new ImageIcon();//Icon Constructor
     try {
            BufferedImage image =; // Read File(Image)
     catch (IOException ex)
                  //For Exceptions
     ImageIcon image = new ImageIcon(file.getPath());
     lblresim.setIcon(image); //Set the label with the file that was taken via filechooser

} else {
   JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"File Choosing cancelled by user.");//If no file taken from FileChoser warn user.
