Where should we put the images that are used in the templates of iReports ? (for example the leaf_banner_violet.png referenced from the Leaf Violet template. Apparently not in the images folder where also the formspider.logo2.png is located.

Hi Ronald,

To be able to use an image, in iReports, you have to set the "image expression" attribute of the image to the absolute path value of your image. As an example, you can use "C:\\reports\\leaf_banner_violet.png" as the image expression value after locating your leaf_banner_violet.png image under c:\reports folder.

Hope this helps,

A better solution is here Adding dynamic path to images in Jasper Reports

The trick is to use a parameter or a field where you have control of to specify the image location. In my case, I read it from the database, from a parameter table.
