Try this

if Clipboard.GetDataObject().GetDataPresent(DataFormats.Bitmap) Then
    pictureBox1.Image = Ctype(Clipboard.GetDataObject().GetData(DataFormats.Bitmap), Bitmap)
End If

What happens when you paste into Paint? Also step through the code to see if the condition is true or false

when I paste into paint.net it pastes
when I paste into paint it does not paste
when I paste into my vb app it does not paste

however doing what you told me made me realize that it wont copy images from my  myPictures folders directly but if I copy the picture into paint.net then copy it from paint.net it does go into my program

so I guess that leaves me with my last question now that I pasted it successfuly into my app how do I save it to file?
