A good format to save images in is .png
Create images as 96dpi .png for optimum quality.
Save the image file to your project directory
Simply place a PictureBox control on the form where you want it, set the size and set the image filename as the picture to use.
There is no need to add the image to the package and deployment of the project – it is automatically included in the resource file.
Setting A Picture Box Image At Runtime
Add an ImageList to the form and set the image size. <
Then set the image to be displayed like this
MyPictureBox->Image = MyImageList->Images;
