If you are developing an Android app, you will likely need to add images to your project. One of the most common locations to store images is in the 'drawable' folder. In this step-by-step guide, we will show you how to add an image to the 'drawable' folder in Android Studio.
Step 1: Create a 'Drawable' Folder
If you do not already have a 'drawable' folder in your project, you will need to create one. To do this, follow these steps:
- Open your Android Studio project
- Right-click on the 'res' folder in the project view
- Select 'New' ? 'Android Resource Directory'
- Select 'drawable' as the resource type and click 'OK'
Step 2: Add Image to 'Drawable' Folder
Now that you have a 'drawable' folder, you can add your image to it. To do this, follow these steps:
- Right-click on the 'drawable' folder in the project view
- Select 'New' ? 'Image Asset'
- In the 'Configure Image Asset' dialog, select 'Asset Type' as 'Image' and choose your image file
- Set the 'Resource Name' and other options as desired

Step 3: Use the Image in Your App
Now that your image is in the 'drawable' folder, you can use it in your app. To do this, you will reference the image by its resource ID. For example, if your image is named 'my_image.png', you would reference it like this:
ImageView imageView = findViewById(R.id.my_image_view); imageView.setImageResource(R.drawable.my_image);
