The Height and Width of an image are stored as a Unit structure.

The Unit defines not only a value for the height/width but a UnitType (pixel, pica, percentage, em etc).

You need to use the Value property to get the length of the measurement (as a double) :

Dim Height as Integer = CInt(Image1.Height.Value)
