When setting an image that is in a folder for a UIIMageView in the designer, the image shows in the designer but does not show in the app. This seems to be due to path style discrepancy between windows and the rest of the world. To reproduce:
1. Place an image, image.jpg, in a folder in the root of the project, let's call the folder Images.
2. In iOS Designer, add a UIImageView and set it's image to the above added image.
3. Note the path used is Images\image.jpg with the backslash
4. Launch the app.
Expected result: the image will display
Actual result: the image does not display
Setting the path to the image in iOS designer to Images/image.jpg causes the image to be shown in the app but not in the iOS designer.
IOW, I believe this is a path style discrepancy between using backslashes and forward slashes.

Addendum for clarification: The image _does_ show in iOS designer after step 2 above when using the windows style path, i.e. Images\image.jpg
I have checked this issue and getting same behavior after following steps mention in bug description.
When we Debug application on device then Image disappear from designer and application launch with added Image successfully on device or emulator.
I'm getting this same bug.
2014-06-12 09:32:48.140 SingleViewTest[12451:a07] Could not load the "Images\bg_splash_medium.png" image referenced from a nib in the bundle with identifier "com.your-company.SingleViewTest"
2014-06-12 09:32:48.143 SingleViewTest[12451:a07] Could not load the "Images\booklet_dashboard.png" image referenced from a nib in the bundle with identifier "com.your-company.SingleViewTest"
Note the \ in the path of the image that iOS is trying to load. This is the path I've selected in VS on Windows, but iOS Designer needs to translate that to a / before deployment.
When checking the XML the row below shows that it indeed isn't translating between path-separators correctly.
<imageView userInteractionEnabled="NO" contentMode="scaleToFill" id="20" fixedFrame="YES" translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints="NO" image="Images\bg_splash_medium.png">
This is an iOS Addin issue, not a designer issue. It looks like the files were mistakenly not copied to the final app bundle.
Oh, on second thoughts maybe this is a designer bug. The file paths could've been incorrectly written to the storyboard.
