Tkinter displaying icon or JPG PNG image in windows by using Label or button using PILLOW library

Escape the path by using two backslashes if you have any char with can be used with backslash. Here \f can be understood as form feed, so we used two backslashes.
added  icon
import tkinter as tk
my_w=tk.Tk()
my_w.geometry('300x100')
my_w.title('www.plus2net.com')
my_w.iconbitmap('D:\\images\\favicon.ico')
my_w.mainloop()

Adding image using Label

Window with Image
import tkinter  as tk 
my_w = tk.Tk()
my_w.geometry("400x200")  
l1 = tk.Label(my_w,  width=15 )
l1.grid(row=1,column=1) 
my_img = tk.PhotoImage(file = "D:\\top2.png") 
l2 = tk.Label(my_w,  image=my_img )
l2.grid(row=1,column=2) 
my_w.mainloop()
You may change you path based on the location of the image file in your system.

Using a Button to add image.

We can place image over one Button
Button  with Image
import tkinter as tk
my_w=tk.Tk()
my_w.geometry('300x100')
my_w.title('www.plus2net.com')
my_w.iconbitmap('D:\\images\\favicon.ico')
my_img = tk.PhotoImage(file = "D:/images/top2.png") 
b1=tk.Button(my_w,image=my_img)
b1.grid(row=1,column=1)
my_w.mainloop()

PIL ( Python Image Library)

To install use this command at command prompt
pip install pillow
For .jpg images we have to use PIL library.
from PIL import ImageTk, Image
If PIL ( Python Image Library ) is not installed then use PIP to install it. You can check the status by using this command and check all installed libraries.
%pip freeze
Here is the code to display Jpg image over a button.
import tkinter as tk
my_w=tk.Tk()
from PIL import Image,ImageTk
my_w.geometry('300x100')
my_w.title('www.plus2net.com')

my_img = ImageTk.PhotoImage(Image.open("D:/images/top2.jpg"))
b1=tk.Button(my_w,image=my_img)
b1.grid(row=1,column=1)

my_w.mainloop()

Background Image of the window

Background Image
Change the path of the image used at my_img2.
To use JPG image we have to include PIL library.
import tkinter  as tk 
from tkinter import ttk
from PIL import Image,ImageTk
my_w = tk.Tk()
my_w.geometry("840x570")  
#my_img = tk.PhotoImage(file = "D:\\top2.png") 
my_img2 = ImageTk.PhotoImage(Image.open("D:\\my_data\\background1.jpg"))
bg = tk.Label(my_w, image=my_img2)
bg.place(x=0, y=0, relwidth=1, relheight=1)
my_w.mainloop()
For PNG image no need of PIL library.
my_img = tk.PhotoImage(file = "D:\\top2.png") 

Width and height of the image

import tkinter  as tk 
my_w = tk.Tk()
my_w.geometry("840x570")  
my_img = tk.PhotoImage(file = "H:\\top2.png") 
print(my_img.width(),my_img.height()) # Width and height of the image 

b1=tk.Button(my_w,image=my_img)
b1.grid(row=1,column=1)

my_w.mainloop()
import tkinter as tk
my_w=tk.Tk()
from PIL import Image,ImageTk
my_w.geometry('400x300')
my_w.title('www.plus2net.com')

my_img = ImageTk.PhotoImage(Image.open("H:/top2.jpg"))
print(my_img.width(),my_img.height()) # Print width and height of the image

b1=tk.Button(my_w,image=my_img)
b1.grid(row=1,column=1,padx=20,pady=20)

my_w.mainloop()
import tkinter as tk
my_w=tk.Tk()
from PIL import Image,ImageTk
my_w.geometry('400x300')
my_w.title('www.plus2net.com')

my_img = Image.open("H:/top2.jpg") # change the path of your image
print(my_img.size) # Print the tuple with width and height of the image
print('Width: ',my_img.size[0],' , Height: ',my_img.size[1])

my_img = ImageTk.PhotoImage(Image.open("H:/top2.jpg"))
b1=tk.Button(my_w,image=my_img)
b1.grid(row=1,column=1,padx=20,pady=20)

my_w.mainloop()
