I need to place a value in this field for something I'm testing :

PictureBinary      varbinary(MAX)      not null

But I get errors when I try 0, 0x0, . . . (see pic)

What (binary) value can I put in there just so I can create the row? thanks

As the message indicates the only value you can enter is NULL.  You will have to use an INSERT statement in order to do enter something other than NULL.  As in:
INSERT YourTable (PictureBinary) VALUES  (Cast('0x0' AS varbinary(MAX)))
