PictureBoxes and Buttons

I'm new to the whole Visual Basic .NET. I have been using VB6 for awhile. I was wondering, how do you make it so in your form you click a command button and it loads an image from the harddrive into the picture box (e.g. "C:\test.jpg"). Code would help, thanks.

  Public Sub OpenImages()
        Dim i As Short
        Dim myOpenFileDialog As New OpenFileDialog
        With myOpenFileDialog
            .CheckFileExists = True
            .DefaultExt = "bmp"
            .Filter = "Icon files(*.ico)|*.ico"
            .Filter += "|Bmp files (*.bmp)|*.bmp"
            .Filter += "|Jpeg files(*.jpg;*.jpeg;*.jpe;*.jfif)|*.jpg"
            .Filter += "|Gif files(*.gif)|*.gif"
            .Filter += "|Tif files(*.tif;*.tiff)|*.tif"
            .Filter += "|Png files(*.Png)|*.Png"
            .InitialDirectory = "c:\"
            .Multiselect = False
        End With
        ' Use the OpenFileDialog and put the path and name of the selected file in a var.
        If myOpenFileDialog.ShowDialog = DialogResult.OK Then
            sFileName = myOpenFileDialog.FileName
            sIconPath = Path.GetDirectoryName(sFileName) & "\"
            i = sFileName.LastIndexOf("\") + 1
            sFileName = sFileName.Substring(i)
        End If
    End Sub
