I once made a program that had a menu bar with some links. I used pictureboxes with a picture Saying "Home", "My Account" etc etc.

When i hover the items i wanted to make an animation effect just like bookmarks in google chrome, so i started to make some gif animations. Unfortunately pictureboxes can't understand transparency so it made some very uncool effects-

Do you know how to make some kind of glowing effects when hovering?

Stop using PictureBoxes where they are not meant to be used!

If really want such effects you should be using WPF. Otherwise, replace the image on hover with one that has the glow effect.

Then don't use transparency. Dah.
