I'm new for the Metro Style App studying.
Today I tried to develop a program to see the pictures in "my pictures" folder.
I could get all the file name but the picture cannot display on the form when it execute.
Did any one experience this issue?
Kindly provide the know-how.

Did you declare the Picture Library Access capability? In order to programmatically access the pictures folder from a Metro style app, you need to declare that your application requires it.
There's an overview available here:
You should be able to do this by double-clicking the "package.appxmanifest" file in Visual Studio and going to the Capabilities tab.

Thanks for your reply first and sorry for my late response.
I did to add the package.appxmanifest. But fail to see the pictures when running it.
I changed by another method to get the image now.
I tried it by using file stream then create new BitmapImage.
The result is success.
But I do not think I should do so many thing to load a image.
It seems not smart even I know it's logical.
I guess I still had something wrong but I do not know why.
Thanks for your reply again.
