Setting an image as the background of th UI
I am trying to create an appealing UI by setting the background as an image using Qt Creator. Could someone please help me on the steps I am supposed to follow because I am stuck.
You could set the background brush for the widget, doing something like this:
QPalette myPalette = palette();
QBrush windowBrush = myPalette.window();
windowBrush.setTexture( backGroundPixmap ); // use setTextureImage if the picture is a QImage
myPalette.setBrush( QPalette::Window, windowBrush );
I did not test this code, so there maybe it does not work just like that. Let me know if you have problems with this.
I dont think you git me right. I meant how do i set an image like a photo as the background of the UI?

Did you even try what mkuettler proposed? It sounds reasonable.
Apart from that: No, a background image won't make any UI appealing, only cluttered and unprofessional. If that is your goal, go right ahead ;)

Do set background image for a ui.
you need to add resoucre file in the project's floder and add the resorce file name to the .pro file
content of resource.qrc
then go to the ui and select change style sheet
add resource to it
