I don't think it really matters; the right approach should be different -- please see my answer.

It looks like the most usual destiny of the class PictureBox is to be abused by the developers! I cannot believe I came across another way to abuse it. I already answered many questions where the inquirers were pointlessly trying to use this very limiting class for some kind of interactive or animated graphics, which was a wrong approach. Here is a new way to abuse it. On average, the class brought more harm than use... :-)

You should nover use PictureBox with a menu strip. The class System.Windows.Forms.MenuStrip uses quite different approach to present images for menu items. You should use the property ImageList of the type System.Windows.Forms.ImageList instead. Everything is explained here:
