I have 2 scanned images (tif format) and I want to transfer them to one larger file. So if each image is 100x100 pixels then the larger file would be say 200x100.

What's the easiest method please?

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim i As Integer, j As Integer
    picTarget.Width = Picture1.Width + Picture2.Width
    picTarget.Height = Picture1.Height
    For i = 0 To Picture1.Image.Height
        For j = 0 To Picture1.Image.Width
            picTarget.PSet (i, j), Picture1.Point(i, j)
        Next
        For j = 0 To Picture2.Image.Width
            picTarget.PSet (i, j + Picture1.Image.Width), Picture2.Point(i, j)
        Next
    Next

End Sub
'add 3 picture boxes on your form; Picture1 and Picture2 are autosize and load them with your images; it is slow, but should work

You should be able to use PaintPicture to achieve this effect.

Start by loading one image into a picturebox.  Then load the other picture into a different picturebox.  Next, enlarge one of the pictureboxes so that it has enough room to hold the image of the other picturebox.  Finally, use PaintPicture to transfer the picture to the desired location, something like this:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
  Dim Picture1Height As Double
 
  Picture1Height = Picture1.Height
  Picture1.Height = Picture1.Height + Picture2.Height
  Picture1.PaintPicture Picture2.Picture, 0, Picture1Height
End Sub

Make sure the Picture1 has autoredraw set to true or the picture will probably disappear on refresh.

rspahitz: That works for Pictureboxes, but what about image controls?
