An image brush uses an image as fill color to fill graphics objects such as a rectangle, ellipse, and path. The <ImageBrush/> represents the image brush in XAML. The BitmapSource property represents the image used to fill the brush.

The following code creates a brush with sunset.jpg. Once a brush is created, you can use it to fill graphics objects.

<ImageBrush BitmapSource="C:\sunset.jpg" />

For example, the following code fills a rectangle with an ImageBrush.

 <Rectangle Width="200" Height="100" Stroke="Black" StrokeThickness="3">
    <Rectangle.Fill>
        <ImageBrush BitmapSource="C:\sunset.jpg" 
/>
    </Rectangle.Fill>
</Rectangle>

The output looks like Figure 1.
