How to Load Image that is set as Embedded Resource in BuildAction in Windows Phone ?

Use the GetManifestResourceStream method in the Assembly object by passing the image name .

Make sure that the image is set to the Embedded Resource and when passing the image name pass the image name along with the Namespace as shown in the below sample code where PhoneApp3 is the ProjectName and StartScreen.jpg is the file name .

Set the BitMapImage’s source to the stream and assign this to the Source property of the Image .

private void button1_Click_1(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
   Assembly CurrentAssembly;
   CurrentAssembly = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
   Stream EmbeddedResourceStream = CurrentAssembly.GetManifestResourceStream("PhoneApp3.StartScreen.jpg");
   BitmapImage bitMapImage = new BitmapImage();
   bitMapImage.SetSource(EmbeddedResourceStream);
   image1.Source = bitMapImage;
}
