Starting in R2019a you can use the uiimage function.
For releases R2016b to R2018b, you can plot image data into a UIAXES.
If you're looking to display image data from a file, the new App Designer button component provides an Icon property that accepts image files. You can reference the following documentation:

Will it be available in R2016b?

If you want to know whether it will be available in R2016b and you are eligible for the Preview, then download the preview and test. Information about forthcoming releases is under Non Disclosure Agreement so the people who know (one way or the other) cannot answer the question here.

Starting in R2019a you can use the uiimage function to create an image component in App Designer apps. See the following post for more information.

So there isn't any way to do it, is it? I would have to work with GUIDE then...
Thank you.

Yes. Hopefully just until the next release in September. Not being able to display images would be a major outage. I'm actually surprised they released it yet without that capability.
