Joining Images.....

I have a few Images with names as Pic11, Pic12, Pic13, Pic21, Pic22, Pic23, Pic 31, Pic32, Pic33
They are all present in one folder let's say "C:\Imran"
They are basically parts of one big image......

They should be joined like this......

Pic11       Pic12         Pic13

Pic21       Pic22         Pic23

Pic31       Pic32         Pic33

to make a big picture and there should be no gap (white pixel array) between these pictures......

Currently I am using Phototshop to join these Pictures but I am sure it can be done in VB very easily....

Any solution with PictureBox/Image Box or anything else that returns me a Picture that is made up of joining these small parts is acceptable to me......
and note that all of these are BMP and the resultant Picture should also be a BMP.......

I  have modified on of my previous solutions to suit your needs:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Visual_Basic/Q_20912572.html

The following project needs a PictureBox and a CommandButton:

Option Explicit

Private Const picCols = 3
Private Const picRows = 3
Private Const picWidth = 20  ' <-------- Change this to the width of your images
Private Const picHeight = 25 ' <-------- Change this to the height of your images

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Me.ScaleMode = vbPixels
    Picture1.Appearance = 0 ' Flat
    Picture1.BorderStyle = 0 ' None
    Picture1.ScaleMode = vbPixels
    Picture1.Width = picCols * picWidth
    Picture1.Height = picRows * picHeight
    Picture1.AutoRedraw = True
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim x As Integer
    Dim y As Integer
    Dim c As Integer
    Dim f As String
    Dim p As String
         
     
    c = 1
    p = "C:\Imran\"
    For y = 1 To picRows
        For x = 1 To picCols
            f = "Pic" & ((y * 10) + x) & ".bmp"
            If Dir(p & f) <> "" Then
                Picture1.PaintPicture LoadPicture(p & f), (x - 1) * picWidth + 1, (y - 1) * picHeight + 1
            Else
                MsgBox "File " & p & f & " not found"
            End If
            c = c + 1
        Next x
    Next y
   
    Picture1.Picture = Picture1.Image
    SavePicture Picture1.Image, p & "Joined.bmp"
End Sub
