if the image is an embedded resource you can use this function:

    Public Function RetrieveEmbeddedImage(ByVal ImageFileName As String) As Image
        ImageName = System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().Name & "." & ImageFileName
        Dim img As Image
        Dim strm As Stream = _
        System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetManifestResourceStream(ImageFileName)
        If Not strm Is Nothing Then
            img = Image.FromStream(strm)
        End If
        strm.Close()
        Return img
    End Function

sorry hit submit to quickly...

ImageFileName = the name of the embedded file.

Also this works best if there are no spaces in your solution and project names.

For embedded resources you can use this instead:

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            pictureBox1.Image = new Bitmap(this.GetType(), "myImage.jpg");
        }

VB.Net would be:

    PictureBox1.Image = New Bitmap(Me.GetType(), "myImage.jpg")
