What kind of modifications are you wanting to make?

While VB6 can natively READ .jpg files...it can't SAVE to .jpg without use of a third party tool.

Image manipulation is much easier in VB.Net which you can get for free with Visual Studio Express.

What kind of changes?

Yes it's possible in VB.Net.  (also possible in VB6...just harder).

The types of changes you need will really dictate the best approach...or tell us if you should simply be using a canned piece of software to accomplish your goal.
