Hello Prashant,

Thank you for contacting Telerik Support.

It is appropriate to use the ItemFormatting event and set the desired image for the specific PropertyGridItemElement:
public Form1()
{
    InitializeComponent();
 
    radPropertyGrid1.PropertySort = PropertySort.Categorized;
    radPropertyGrid1.SelectedObject = new Item(1234, "Custom title", "Description", 9834657);
    radPropertyGrid1.ItemFormatting += radPropertyGrid1_ItemFormatting;
 
    radPropertyGrid1.PropertyGridElement.PropertyTableElement.ItemHeight = 50;
}
 
private void radPropertyGrid1_ItemFormatting(object sender, PropertyGridItemFormattingEventArgs e)
{
    PropertyGridItemElement item = e.VisualElement as PropertyGridItemElement;
    if (item != null && e.Item.Name=="Photo" )
    {
        item.ValueElement.DrawText = false;
        item.ValueElement.Image = Properties.Resources.AndrewFuller;
        item.ValueElement.ImageLayout = ImageLayout.Zoom;
    }       
}
 
public class Item
{
    [Category("Category1")]
    public int Id { get; set; }
 
    [Category("Category2")]
    public string Title { get; set; }
 
    [Category("Category2")]
    public string Description { get; set; }
 
    [Category("Category1")]
    public int BarCode { get; set; }
 
    public Image Photo { get; set; }
 
    public Item(int id, string title, string description, int barCode)
    {
        this.Id = id;
        this.Title = title;
        this.Description = description;
        this.BarCode = barCode;
        this.Photo=Properties.Resources.AndrewFuller;
    }
}

I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
 
Regards,
