Set AutoRedraw = True for the picture box and then use the following to save it to bitmap.

    SavePicture Picture1.Image, "c:\testbed\pic1.bmp"

You cannot use this method to save as a GIF though.

I could be wrong, but I seem to remember that if you use LoadPicture for a gif, then SavePicture saves it as such....

The picture is saved in original format if it's a bmp, ico, wmf, etc.....
JPG's and GIF's are saved as bitmaps though.
You can't actually save GIF's at all without paying an extortionate amount of money to Unisys, 'cos they have licensed the compression algorithm.
Try using PNG instead.
