SwiftUI: images

You can display an image in a SwiftUI view by using the Image view.

First you need to add the image to a new image set in your Assets.xcassets file in the Xcode project navigator.

Then you can add the image to your ContentView like this:

import SwiftUI

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        Image("Avatar")
    }
}

You can also use Image to show a system image, using the format Image(systemName:):

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        Image(systemName: "house")
    }
}

The Image view has a set of modifiers you can use, including:

  • .resizable() to resize the image and adjust to the .frame() dimensions
  • .frame() to set its width/height
  • .clipShape() to set a clipping shape
  • .border() to set the color of the border
  • .overlay() to layer another view in front of it
  • .aspectRatio() to set the aspect ratio
  • .clipped() to cut off the image outside of the frame
