Add a bitmap layer

I would like to get that result:

I have the map, the country layer, the label layer and a JPEG (can convert it in any format) that I want to put as the backgroung just like the image above.

I searched for a while, but couldn't find any information.

I know it's possible since the above screenshot is a SharpMap screenshot ;)

Please help me.

Thanks a lot in advance.

I  haven't tried this one, but in svn trunk there is a sample of map loading with bitmap. I'm beginner and it did took time to understand that I had to add all 29Mb of  fwtools/bin dlls in the project's bin/debug folder, but finally it works. The WinFormSamples provided in source displays a bitmap and a vector layer.
