getDrawable Deprecated what is the alternative?

The method getDrawable appears with a strike line across and when I hover the mouse over it indicates that the method is deprecated.

What is the alternative? The code where this message is appearing is as follows:

Drawable drawable = getResources().getDrawable(page.getImageId());

Hey Stephen!

Here's another thread that talks about what the alternative is, BUT you could also just leave it as is. As far as I know, Android doesn't ever really remove deprecated methods, so it should work just fine.
