Sh*t my brain says and forgets about

Loading a UIImage from a bundle

I’ve been scratching my freaking head for an hour trying to figure out how to load an image from my application’s bundle.  Doing this in Interface Builder is easy as pie, but not so straightforward.

[UIImage imageWithContentsOfFile:[[NSBundle mainBundle] pathForResource:@”thefilename” ofType:@”jpg”]];

Easy, isn’t it?

    Great stuff, spot on here too!

  4. I have found that this

    UIImage* I = [[UIImage imageNamed:@”image.png”] retain];

    Also really works.
