Drag&drop-swapping

I am using....
Private Sub Picture12_DragDrop(Source As Control, X As Single, Y As Single)
If TypeOf Source Is PictureBox Then
        Picture12.Picture = Source.Picture
    End If
End Sub
.....to drag and drop an image from one box to another.

How can I swap the images, so that the the image in the drop box is pasted into the source box?

You will need a third picture box.
Set the AutoRedraw property to True.
Set the Visible property to False.

Then:
Private Sub Picture12_DragDrop(Source As Control, X As Single, Y As Single)
If TypeOf Source Is PictureBox Then
        PictureTemp.Picture = Picture12.Picture
        Picture12.Picture = Source.Picture
        Source.Picture = PictureTemp.Picture
    End If
End Sub

The above is the easy answer.

Alternately, you could use the API to create what amounts to a picturebox in memory and then use that instead.  But the above will work in most instances and, because it's visible property is set to false, it won't use much more resources than using the API calls.
