You would have to get a device context for your picturebox control and then manually BitBlt images onto different areas of the picturebox.

This is advanced API programming and would most likely require more points to get the attention of the experts.

Actually, there is a way to do it using VB alone.  This will put the two pictures side by side in the PictureBox:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim p1 As Picture
    Dim p2 As Picture
   
    Set p1 = LoadPicture("c:\my documents\my pictures\decorative_horse.gif")
    Set p2 = LoadPicture("c:\my documents\my pictures\decorative_horse2.bmp")

    Picture1.AutoRedraw = True
    Picture1.ScaleMode = vbPixels
    Picture1.PaintPicture p1, 0, 0
    Picture1.PaintPicture p2, Picture1.ScaleX(p1.Width, vbHimetric, vbPixels), 0
End Sub
