vb6: saving a picture painted with autoredraw=false

Dear Experts,

I am using picturebox1.paintpicture with autoredraw = false because with large images it takes much too long to complete when autoredraw=true.

With autoredraw=true, I can grab the painted image by using the statement: picturebox1.picture=picturebox1.image but this does not work when autoredraw=false. Also tried changing autoredraw to true after painting, but this did not work either.

How can I grab the image painted into the picturebox when it was painted with autoredraw=false?
