SteemJ Image Upload is really easy to use. The following code shows a full sample:

import java.io.File;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.net.URL;

import eu.bittrade.libs.steemj.base.models.AccountName;
import eu.bittrade.libs.steemj.image.upload.SteemJImageUpload;

public class ExampleApplication {
    public static void main(String args[]) {
        AccountName myAccount = new AccountName("dez1337");
        // Please be informed that this is not the correct private key of dez1337.
        String myPrivatePostingKeyAsWif = "5KMamixsFoUkdlz7sNG4RsyaKQyJMBBqrdT6y54qr4cdVhU9rz7";
        File imageToUpload = new File("C:/Users/dez1337/Desktop/SteemJImageBanner.png");

        try {
            URL myImageUrl = SteemJImageUpload.uploadImage(myAccount, myPrivatePostingKeyAsWif, imageToUpload);
            System.out.println("The image has been uploaded and is reachable using the URL: " + myImageUrl);
        } catch (IOException e) {
            System.out.println("There was a problem uploading the image.");

An output of the code above will look like this:
