Are you saying that picture should be dynamically taken from the disk location or can it be added to the project?

no...when a user browse for a picture and then selects the file...the image should be displayed on picturebox...BUT WITH NO DATABASE CONNECTIVITY....

You can add picture into the picture box using 2 methods.
1. When you are making the project. Picture will get inserted into the binary.

You can add image location by selecting properties of picturebox and providing path to ImageLocation property.

2. You can add picture dynamically, that is during run time. In this case picture is not inside binary, it is present at some location in the hard disk.

You can update ImageLocation property during runtime as shown below.
public Form1()
    pictureBox2.ImageLocation = @"E:\TP\Songs\AlbumArtSmall.jpg";

so will i have to use 'ImageLocation' property...????
coz i was using only 'Image' property...!!!

yes you will have to use ImgaeLocation property because the picturebox control shows picture from the path present at ImageLocation property of picture box

you can use SizeMode for that.. check below code

public Form1()
pictureBox2.ImageLocation = @"E:\TP\Songs\AlbumArtSmall.jpg";
pictureBox2.SizeMode = PictureBoxSizeMode.StretchImage;
