    There are probably others, but:-

    1) A picture box can act as a container. An image control can't.
    2) A picture box has many methods an image box lacks.
    3) A picture box has a device context. An image box uses the form's device context.

    If you just want to show an image, an image control is fine. If you're looking to do more, you want a picture box.
