For some reason, I am only seeing the top left corner of my picture in my picturebox.

Any suggestions?

the image is bigger than that, and so is the picturebox

On the behavior section of the your picturebox properties, set the sizeMode to StreatchImage.

I tried that, I don't want to stretch it, it is just showing a small piece of the image, the left corner.
When I stretch it, it shows the same small piece, just stretched.

What format is the picture in?  Just for laughs, change the picture format to something else, like .BMP or JPG.

Or just try another picture, see if you get the same results.

Are you getting the image from an imagelist?

If so, they have default size attributes of 16x16.

Increase the Imagesize width and height to the size of the image itself (in pixels).

I just figured it out when I added them to my image box, I didn't specify the correct size.

Thanks for your help.

Is there a reason to use a image box?

I don't know where they will be at runtime, I don't want to have to include them on the clinets machine in a directory.

No, you'll be fine.  Once an image has been added to the form via a picturebox, it's going to stay with the form.
