    A bit tricky, but here it goes :

    Private Sub Command1_Click()
       Picture1.AutoRedraw = True                 ' this is the important line !!!!
       Picture1 = LoadPicture("the initial one.bmp")
       Picture1.Circle (100, 100), 200, vbRed    ' draw a circle, not a nose !
       Picture1.Picture = Picture1.Image
       SavePicture Picture1, "the new one.bmp"
    End Sub
