I am trying to write a desktop app where users can browse their computers for images and when they are found drag them onto a design stage. Basically the interface for the app consists of a tools panel on the right side of the screen and the design stage (a large white box) on the left. One of the many tools within the tools panel is a browse button which is used to search for images. How can I add the ability to drag images from where ever they reside onto the design stage using C#? Please point me to a site that talks about importing images into an app if you know of any, thanks in advance for your help.

Create a new Panel in the staging-area, and display the image within. Go here[^] for explanation on implementing Drag&Drop.
Images can't be stored in the application, one would use a special directory or, preferably, a local database (like SqlCe or Sqlite). There are various examples on storing and retrieving images from a database.
