You can use ImageList to store a collection of images either at design time or run time and use it any where in your app.

Instead of FromFile() use FromStream() which does NOT leave the file locked.

Simple example:

    Dim fs As New System.IO.FileStream("c:\some\path\image.jpg", IO.FileMode.Open)
    PictureBox1.Image = Image.FromStream(fs)
    fs.Close()
