This example demonstrates how to load and display an image in ImageView on Android App.

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
   xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width="fill_parent"
   android:layout_height="fill_parent"
   android:orientation="vertical"
   tools:context=".MyAndroidAppActivity">
   <ImageView
      android:id="@+id/imageView1"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>
   <Button
      android:id="@+id/btnChangeImage"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:text="Change Image" />
</LinearLayout>

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MyAndroidAppActivity.java

package com.example.sample;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.ImageView;
import android.view.View;
import android.view.View.OnClickListener;
public class MyAndroidAppActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   Button button;
   ImageView image;
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      addListenerOnButton();
   }
   public void addListenerOnButton() {
      image=(ImageView) findViewById(R.id.imageView1);
      button=(Button) findViewById(R.id.btnChangeImage);
      button.setOnClickListener(new OnClickListener() {
         @Override
         public void onClick(View arg0) {
            image.setImageResource(R.drawable.ic_launcher_background);
         }
      });
   }
}

Step 4 − Add the following code to Manifests/AndroidManifest.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" package="com.example.sample">
   <application
      android:allowBackup="true"
      android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
      android:label="@string/app_name"
      android:roundIcon="@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"
      android:supportsRtl="true"
      android:theme="@style/AppTheme">
      <activity android:name=".MyAndroidAppActivity">
         <intent-filter>
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
            <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
         </intent-filter>
      </activity>
   </application>
</manifest>
