Yes just post sample code. It would be easier for us to check what 's wrong in your code.

heres the code, button 1 and 2 are on form 1 and they select the picture to display and then hide the form 1, and display form 2, form 2 then returns the path of a new picture which form1 should display, the code works if i comment this.Hide() ie form 1 hide, but doesnt display new picture if i have the Hide()


private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            {
                  OpenFileDialog openFileDialog = new OpenFileDialog();

                  openFileDialog.Filter = "Picture Files|*.jpg;";
                  openFileDialog.InitialDirectory = @"C:\" ;
                  if(openFileDialog.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
                  {
                        picfile = openFileDialog.FileName ;
                  }
                  pictureBox1.Image = Image.FromFile(picfile) ;
            }

private void button2_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            {
                        form2.Show();
                  this.Hide();
            }

//this function gets the file to display
private void PassData(string s)
            {
                  pictureBox1.Image = Image.FromFile(s) ;
            }

now if i comment out this.Hide(), then the picturebox displays the image but if i have it then it doesnt

Put your image loading code in the Load event for the form as well.

Basically in your form class

class WinForm
{
    Image m_img //store the picturebox image when opening the image
    bool isImg = false; // set to true when first loading the image

private void WinForm_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
     if(isImg==true)
     {
              pictureBox1.Image = m_img;
     }
}

//modify
private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
          {
               OpenFileDialog openFileDialog = new OpenFileDialog();

               openFileDialog.Filter = "Picture Files|*.jpg;";
               openFileDialog.InitialDirectory = @"C:\" ;
               if(openFileDialog.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
               {
                    picfile = openFileDialog.FileName ;
               }
               pictureBox1.Image = Image.FromFile(picfile) ;
               m_img = pictureBox1.Image;
               isImg = true;
          }

}
