           % Fill figure with axes "ha" and remove tick labels
             app.ha.Position = [0 0 app.UIFigure.Position(3:4)];
            % Remove title, axis labels, and tick labels
            title(app.ha, []);
            xlabel(app.ha, []);
            ylabel(app.ha, []);
            app.ha.XAxis.TickLabels = {};
            app.ha.YAxis.TickLabels = {};
            % Display image and stretch to fill axes
            I = imshow('Powerlines.jpg', 'Parent', app.ha,'XData', [1 app.ha.Position(3)],'YData', [1 app.ha.Position(4)]);
            % Set limits of axes
            app.ha.XLim = [0 I.XData(2)];
            app.ha.YLim = [0 I.YData(2)];

I hope it helps you

I have the same question? I've tried to put this oin startap callback function, but it doesn't work,

Create an Axes (2D). In this example it is named app.ha. Then you can copy this code in the startup function. If you Axes has another name, change the code.

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.
