Hi.! uhm i just partially finished my card game project "Lucky Nine" in simple java application..

The results of the game are just printed in System.out.println, and i cant manage to turn it into just JOptionPane..

uhm, anyways, i need you guys to help me how to load images from file in just a simple java application, i havnt learned about jframes etc and my code is just ready for a simple java application..

can you help guys? the images is just all i wanted...

hope you still help me how to put for this code...

heres my code...

import javax.swing.JOptionPane;

public class LuckyNine_2 {

    int money = 1000; //players pot money is = 1000
    int sum = 0; //sum of cards
    String dealt; //string of dealing card
    String bet; //players bet asking to enter the bet

    //String[] lead = new String[dealer];
