Using UIImageView

Whenever you want an image in a view controller, you use a UIImageView. A UIImageView contains a UIImage, which is the raw bitmap, and allows you to configure how you want to scale or crop the image.

Step 1: Add the UIImageView to the view controller

Once you've added the UIImageView, it's often easier to type in the desired position and dimensions in the ruler pane, especially if you want the dimensions to match your image asset.

Step 2: Choose the image asset

Assuming that you already added the image asset to the project, open the UIImageView properties pane and select the image asset. Configure the mode with the resizing or cropping behavior.
