    Compute the value FIRST using a String variable. Make sure that it is correct, and then use it in the .Save event

    Code:
    button1_Click()
    {
      var filePath = String.Format(Application.StartupPath + "\\Resimler\\kayit{0}.png", a); // <-- what is 'a' in your code?
      pictureBox1.Image.Save(filePath, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Png);
     }
    Break out the file path as I've shown above. In your original code, you had the closing ')' for the String.Format call in the wrong place.

    You also need to track down what 'a' is.

    First of all, thanks for reply.

    This my save button click() code;

    if (txtAd.Text != "" && txtSoyad.Text != "" && txtTC.Text != "" && txtNo.Text != "" && txtBaba.Text != "" && txtBolum.Text != "" && txtGun.Text != "" && txtAy.Text != "" && txtYil.Text != "" && txtAdres.Text != "" && txtTel.Text != "")
    {
    button4.Enabled = true;
    var filePath = String.Format(Application.StartupPath + "\\Resimler\\kayit{0}.png", a);
    pictureBox1.Image.Save(filePath, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Png);


    if (a == 2)
    {
    MessageBox.Show("En Fazla 2 Kare Çekebilirsiniz. Çıkıştuşuna basarak Kayıtların silip, yeniden oluşturabilirsiniz.", "UYARI!", MessageBoxButtons.OKCancel, MessageBoxIcon.Warning);

    button4.Enabled = false;
    }
    label6.Text = (a.ToString()) + " Fotoğraf çekildi";
    a = a + 1;

    }
    else { MessageBox.Show("Lütfen tüm gerekli alanları doldurunuz...", "UYARI!", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Information); }

    But This error;

    ************** JIT Debugging **************
    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this

    The application must also be compiled with debugging
    enabled.

    For example:

    <configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
    </configuration>

    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
    rather than be handled by this dialog box.

    Use need to use the debugger to help you figure this out.

    Put a breakpoint on the following line (click on the line and press F9)

    Code:
    pictureBox1.Image.Save(filePath,
    Press F5 to start debugging.

    When the debugger breaks on the breakpoint, hover the mouse over the filePath variable to see its contents.

    Does it look like it's been formed correctly?

    Add some code to verify that the path exists and that you have access to it. If you are trying to save a file to the location where your app has been installed you probably don't have access.

    From what I said earlier:
    If you are trying to save a file to the location where your app has been installed you probably don't have access.
    When you install a program, your permissions get elevated.

    When you run the program, the program runs under non-elevated permissions, so if you try to save a file in the same place the app has been installed, you probably won't have the required permissions.

    To test this, run the app with administrator permissions. If you can save the file, it's a permissions issue. If you can't, it's something else.
