I have folder called images which contains images needed for my WPF app.
Now I want to use them as resource from XAML and from Runtime.

Is it possible, if yes how (MVVM way) ?

Thanks :)

You just need to set your image's build action to Resource in properties, then you can refer to them as normal
a. in code
public Image MyIcon
        return new Bitmap(@"images\yourImage.bmp");

b. in XAML

It's the same thing just use something like this - yourBrush.ImageSource =
new BitmapImage(
new Uri(@"Images\yourImage.jpg", UriKind.Relative)

this would be a good solution if he'd asked about using resources and not embedded resources
