Use a Timer Control

Set the Interval of the Timer to 10 Sec (10000)

then to load and show a picture

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
       PictureBox1.Image=Image.FromFile("C:\YourImage.jpg")
       Timer1.Enabled = True
    End Sub


  Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick
        PictureBox1.Visible = False
        Timer1.Enabled=False
    End Sub
