How do I save a picture box's picture into a file?  I don't care what it is, bmp, jpg, or gif.
Who is Participating?
I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try something like this..

Place a command button on the form.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    SavePicture Picture1.Picture, "C:\YourPicture.bmp"
End Sub
Yeah, it's very simple, but it can only be BMP files..:(  If you have used picture1.pset(..) or Picture1.Line or similar functions, you must use:

SavePicture Picture1.Image, "C:\mypic.bmp"
