First download picasso-2.4.0.jar from http://square.github.io/picasso/ and copy it onto libs of your project. Then add the lines of code as follows:

ParseObject message = mMessages.get(position); // The position is the row index of the Message table for your image in Parse. The mMessages is data source member that is set from the MessageAdapter constructor.

ParseFile file = message.getParseFile("file"); // The "file" is assumed the column name of your Message table for stored images

imageUrl = Uri.parse(file.getUrl());


thanks alot......worked great
