Clear Button Code

Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

End Sub

After you remove the image from the picturebox you can also call the dispose method to release the resource in the picturebox

It is nessecary to dispose the picture

Releasing the resources after you remove an image allows you to edit, rename, or delete the image from a different program without any affect from your visual basic application.

Before you call the dispose method, make sure that the picturebox doesn't have an image, otherwise you will get an error exception. This is what the following code does:

 If PictureBox1.Image Is Nothing Then
            PictureBox1.Dispose()
 End If
