Use the BitBlt function, instead of pictureboxes, it's much faster:

Declare Function BitBlt Lib "gdi32" Alias "BitBlt" (ByVal hDestDC As Long, ByVal x As Long, ByVal y As Long, ByVal nWidth As Long, ByVal nHeight As Long, ByVal hSrcDC As Long, ByVal xSrc As Long, ByVal ySrc As Long, ByVal dwRop As Long) As Long

If you want to move the picture in Pic1, then set it's scalemode to pixels, and:

BitBlt form1.hdc, X, Y, Pic1.width, Pic1.Height, Pic1.hDC, 0, 0, vbSrcCopy
