Android Build a Self-Destructing Message Android App Retrieving and Viewing Messages Using Picasso to View Images from the Web

After adding the picasso-2.5.2.jar file to my libs directory.. It still cannot resolve symbol 'Picasso' (SOLVED)

The title of this thread pretty much explains the issue.. But I added the latest Picasso jar file to my libs directory but after writing:

Picasso.with(this).load(imageUri.toString()).into(imageView);

It says it cannot resolve symbol 'Picasso'

EDIT: oops silly me, I forgot to add the dependency to my gradle file, after doing so it recognizes 'Picasso'

compile 'com.squareup.picasso:picasso:2.5.2'
