You may come across a requirement to access the entire picture saved in Media Library of Windows Phone. Media Library can be access using MediaLibrary class.

Eventually you can set imageToShow as source of Image control. For your reference below code will add all the pictures from Media Library in a listbox called lstImageFromMediaLibrary

MediaLibrary m = new MediaLibrary();

foreach (var r in m.Pictures)
{
Stream imageStream = r.GetImage();

var imageToShow = new Image()
{
Source = PictureDecoder.DecodeJpeg(r.GetImage())
};

lstImageFromMediaLibrary.Items.Add(imageToShow);
}
}

You can access Media Library on emulator only in debugmode. In this way you can access all the images from Media library. I hope this post is useful. Thanks for reading.
