When you run my program you can scribble on a form like paper with a pencil, it also has a zoomed out view the zoomed out view is automaticly updated. If I load a small picture to the background it is still smooth but if I load a large picture to the background  it is slow and does not update instantly. Is there a way to fix this?

About the only thing you can do is to have a picturebox hidden (with autoredraw set to true).  Load that, then when it's done loading, move the image from the picturebox to the background.
