Your first step would be to set the receiving picture boxes    "AllowDrop" property to true.

Then in your source picture box you need to add code to the Mouse Down Event to start the drag like this

Public Sub PictureBox1_MouseDown(sender as Object, e as System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles PictureBox1.MouseDown
  Me.DoDragDrop(PictureBox1.Image,DragDropEffects.Copy)
End Sub

In your Receiving Picture Boxes you want to code the DragEnter and DragDrop Events Like This.

Public Sub PictureBox2_DragEnter(sender as Object, e as System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles PictureBox2.DragEnter
  If e.Data.GetDataPresent(GetType(Image)) Then
    e.Effect = DragDropEffects.Copy
  Else
   e.Effect = DragDropEffects.None
  End If
End Sub

Public Sub PictureBox2_DragDrop(sender as Object, e as System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles PictureBox2.DragDrop
  PictureBox2.Image = DirectCast(e.Data.GetData(GetType(Image)),Image)
End Sub

This is a simple scaled down version.   Hope this helps get you started.
