    ONly problem im having is converting between a system.drawing.image to a system.windows.controls.image. cant find anything on web about it.

the following code snippet can do the trick:
System.Drawing.Bitmap GdiBitmap = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(@"c:\temp\sample.jpg");
                        IntPtr hBitmap = bitmap.GetHbitmap();
                        System.Windows.Media.BitmapSource WpfBitmap = System.Windows.Interop.Imaging.CreateBitmapSourceFromHBitmapbitmap(hBitmap, IntPtr.Zero, Int32Rect.Empty, BitmapSizeOptions.FromEmptyOptions());
                        System.Windows.Controls.Image WpfImage = new System.Windows.Controls.Image();
                        WpfImage.Source = WpfBitmap;
