It would be helpful if you show us some code excerpt for this.

Are using something like below?

<element image="Resources/Hydrogen.jpg" ... />


If so, then Hydrogen.jpg should be located in the Resources subdirectory 
of current directory when your program is running.  It won't "magically" 
find the needed file even if it was compiled into your program resources.

Typically, you use resources for hard-coded images (more generally, 
data), not for data which location is specified in external files like 
in your xml.
