This is how you add and use pictures in Your App:

3. Create a folder in Visual Studio

Your picture is now visible and it should cover the entire background of the app.
notice that once you dragged the image into the assets folder in Visual Studio, you also move the image file to a different folder on the disk. You may delete the orginal picture in your temporary folder.
