PyQt5 (and Qt) support images by default. In this article we’ll show you how to add an image to a window. An image can be loaded using the QPixmap class.
PyQt5 image introduction
Adding an image to a PyQt5 window is as simple as creating a label and adding an image to that label. You can load an image into a QPixmap. A QPixmap can be used to display an image in a PyQt window.
To load an image from a file, you can use the QPixmap.load() method. This will return a True or False value depending on whether the image was successfully loaded.
Once you have loaded an image into a QPixmap, you can then display it by creating a QLabel and setting the pixmap property of the label to the QPixmap.
These are the required imports:
PyQt5 load image (QPixmap)
Copy the code below and run it. The image should be in the same directory as your program.
If you are new to programming Python PyQt, I highly recommend this book.

How can i pass a variable which contains file path in QPixmap,instead if directly passing the image name. if doing like this:
But it gives me an error QPixmap(): argument 1 has unexpected type 'tuple'
I have been struggling with it for quiet a few days. Please tell me what should i do.
It returns a tuple, the first parameter of the tuple contains the path and filename.
