Do as follow :
nMaxImages contains the current number of images loaded

 nMaxImages = nMaxImages + 1
 Load Image(nMaxImages)
 Image(nMaxImages).Picture = LoadPicture(...)

nMaxImages indicates the actual number of instances of images in memory.

This means that you load the picture from a file into the lastest image control you have created.

You can do this in a loop

 for nI = 1 to 10
   nMaxImages = nMaxImages + 1
   Load Image(nMaxImages)
   Image(nMaxImages).Picture = LoadPicture("Image" & Cstr(nI) & ".bmp")
 next
