That's kind of vague, but in essence you need to instantiate two System.Drawing.Bitmap objects and compare them pixel by pixel.
You might find that something in the AForge.NET library could help your specific case.

Check Out the following Code :
Private Sub btnCheck_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnGo.Click
    Me.Cursor = Cursors.WaitCursor

    ' Get the threshold.
    Dim threshold As Integer = _

    ' Load the images.
    Dim bmp1 As Bitmap = Image.FromFile(txtFile1.Text)
    Dim bmp2 As Bitmap = Image.FromFile(txtFile2.Text)

    ' Make a difference image.
    Dim wid As Integer = Math.Min(bmp1.Width, bmp2.Width)
    Dim hgt As Integer = Math.Min(bmp1.Height, bmp2.Height)
    Dim bmp3 As New Bitmap(wid, hgt)

    ' Create the difference image.
    Dim are_identical As Boolean = True
    Dim r1, g1, b1, r2, g2, b2, r3, g3, b3 As Integer
    Dim color1, color2 As Color
    Dim eq_color As Color = Color.White
    Dim ne_color As Color = Color.Red
    Dim dr, dg, db, diff As Integer
    For x As Integer = 0 To wid - 1
        For y As Integer = 0 To hgt - 1
            color1 = bmp1.GetPixel(x, y)
            color2 = bmp2.GetPixel(x, y)
            dr = CInt(color1.R) - color2.R
            dg = CInt(color1.G) - color2.G
            db = CInt(color1.B) - color2.B
            diff = dr * dr + dg * dg + db * db
            If diff <= threshold Then
                bmp3.SetPixel(x, y, eq_color)
                bmp3.SetPixel(x, y, ne_color)
                are_identical = False
            End If
        Next y
    Next x

    ' Display the result.
    picResult.Image = bmp3

    Me.Cursor = Cursors.Default
    If (bmp1.Width <> bmp2.Width) OrElse (bmp1.Height <> _
        bmp2.Height) Then are_identical = False
    If are_identical Then
        MessageBox.Show("The images are identical")
        MessageBox.Show("The images are different")
    End If

End Sub

I hope it will help you.
