step 1 : Create “assets/images” folder in your project directory

  • Create “assets” folder in your project root directory.
  • Create “images” folder in your assets folder.
Flutter Assets Images
Flutter Assets Images

Note : Your “assets” folder will have “images” and many other project assets like “fonts”, “icons”, “animation files” etc.

step 2 : Add images to your “images” folder

  • Just drag-n-drop your image inside the “images” folder
  • Image Relative Path : assets/images/bluetruck.png

step 3 : Register your assets folder in pubspec.yaml file

  • Open pubspec.yaml file
  • Add assets subsection to the flutter section or uncomment the assets section and add your image relative path.
  • Save the pubspec.yaml file and run “flutter pub get command” in terminal.
  1. If using Android Studio — Save the file and Click Packages get in action ribbon.
  2. If using VS Code : It automatically runs command on saving pubspec.yaml file.

Note : If you have multiple images that you want to include in your project then you can skip the filename.

For Example :

assets:- assets/images/
  • This includes all the images inside “images” folder.
  • This is helpful when we have many images to be included in our project.
  • Say, we have 25 images in our “images folder” so we will not have to register each image filename inside pubspec.yaml file separately.
  • Using the above syntax we can include all images in a single line.

step 4 : Code Implementation - Use Flutter Image class

Flutter Image Class - Documentation

Also refer official class documentation with this guide to deeply understand the concept.
