Hello there!
Say I have two picture boxes, Picture1 and Picture2 and I want to compare the content of them. Is there a way for me to find out if the content is equal in the two picture boxes?

"The code can flip pictures, invert them using 3 different methods, compare pictures, divides the Picture into its three main channels and it combines them to one"

assuming the two pictures are the same scale then you can do this:

function compare()
for i = 0 to picture1.scalewidth
   for j = o t0 picture1.scaleheight
      color1 = picture1.point(i,j)
      color2 = picture2.point(i,j)
      if color1 <> color2 then
         msgbox "not equal"
         exit function
      end if
   next
next
msgbox "equal"
end function

Thanks both of you. Seems stupid not to have an API-call for this task. Anyway, the points go to the first poster - sorry AzraSound . . .

From the link I posted, I pulled some code. The following code is simliar to ArazSound's code.

Place a command button on the form.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim s As Boolean

sw = Picture1(0).ScaleWidth
sh = Picture1(0).ScaleHeight

s = True
For i = 0 To sw
For j = 0 To sh
    col1 = Picture1(0).Point(i, j)
    col2 = Picture1(4).Point(i, j)
    If col1 <> col2 Then
        s = False
        GoTo endw
    End If
Next j
Next i
endw:
If s Then
MsgBox "OK"
Else
MsgBox "Net OK"
End If
End Sub

there may be api to do it, though i've never worked with it before. you can get the entire color table from a dib so i suppose there is a way to compare those color tables once you extract them from the two respective pictures.

if youre interested, check out info at msdn regarding:
