Complex launchfile example

<launch>                                                                        
  <node pkg="image_publisher" type="image_publisher" name="image_publisher"
        args="$(find rviz)/images/splash.png" >
    <param name="flip_horizontal" value="false" />
    <param name="flip_vertical" value="false" />
    <param name="frame_id" value="my_camera" />
    <param name="publish_rate" value="1" />
    <param name="camera_info_url" value="file:///$(env HOME)/.ros/camera_info/camera.yaml" />   <!-- relative to ~/.ros/ -->
  </node>
</launch>

More complex nodelet example using launch file

<launch>                                                                        
  <node pkg="nodelet" type="nodelet" name="manager" args="manager"/>

  <node pkg="nodelet" type="nodelet" name="image_publisher"
        args="load image_publisher/image_publisher manager">
    <param name="filename" value="$(find rviz)/images/splash.png" />
    <param name="flip_horizontal" value="false" />
    <param name="flip_vertical" value="false" />
  </node>
  <param name="/manager/frame_id" value="my_camera" />
  <param name="/manager/publish_rate" value="1" />
  <param name="camera_info_url" value="file:///$(env HOME)/.ros/camera_info/camera.yaml" />  <!-- relative to ~/.ros/ -->
</launch>
