    Probably, but, what do you want to do, EXACTLY?

    Way cool in Windows 7, but different for Vista, and XP.

    You can DRAW Text on a picturebox control by default.

    Yes, for sure!

    For starters, you will definitely need the DrawString method of your Graphicsa object to do this

    Did you just load the picture into the PictureBox, or is it a Drawing ( which you have done through code ). if you could explain this part, I can quickly work out a small sample for you
