GetAccountPicture and SetAccountPictureAsync methods are used to get and set the user's account picture.

The following code snippet gets the user's picture and displays in an Image control.

// Get account picture and display it in an Image control
StorageFile image = Windows.System.UserProfile.UserInformation.GetAccountPicture
    (Windows.System.UserProfile.AccountPictureKind.SmallImage) as StorageFile;
if (image != null)
{
    try
    {
        IRandomAccessStream imageStream = await image.OpenReadAsync();
        BitmapImage bitmapImage = new BitmapImage();
        bitmapImage.SetSource(imageStream);
        Image1.Source = bitmapImage;
        Image1.Visibility = Visibility.Visible; 

    }

    catch (Exception ex)

    {                  

    }
}
