If you use an image control insted a picture box control, you can change the stretch property to true, and your picture will be zoomed.

Cool !  I didn't know that.  Is there any way that I can
actually zoom (parts of) a picture ?

I'm not sure, but if you know about Bitmap file format, maybe you can be able to really zoom the image.
