There is not such thing as C#.NET.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace WindowsFormsApplication5
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()

        private Image imgOriginal;

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                             // set Slider Attributes
                               zoomSlider.Minimum = 1;
                                zoomSlider.Maximum = 5;
                                  zoomSlider.SmallChange = 1;
                                   zoomSlider.LargeChange = 1;
                                    zoomSlider.UseWaitCursor = false;
                   // reduce flickering
                 this.DoubleBuffered = true;
        public Image PictureBoxZoom(Image img, Size size)
            imgOriginal = Image.FromFile(openFileDialog1.FileName);
            Bitmap bm = new Bitmap(imgOriginal, Convert.ToInt32(imgOriginal.Width * size.Width), Convert.ToInt32(imgOriginal.Height * size.Height));
            Graphics grap = Graphics.FromImage(bm);
            //grap.InterpolationMode = InterpolationMode.HighQualityBicubic;
            return bm;

        private void zoomSlider_Scroll(object sender, EventArgs e)
            if (zoomSlider.Value > 0)
                picBox.Image = null;
                picBox.Image = PictureBoxZoom(imgOriginal, new Size(zoomSlider.Value, zoomSlider.Value));

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            DialogResult res = MessageBox.Show("Message", "Try", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo);
            if (res == DialogResult.Yes)
                string imagepath = openFileDialog1.FileName;
                picBox.ImageLocation = imagepath;
                MessageBox.Show("picture cancelled", "message");

For Zooming In :

pictureBox1.Top= (int)(pictureBox1.Top - (pictureBox1.Height * 0.025));
pictureBox1.Left = (int)(pictureBox1.Left - (pictureBox1.Width * 0.025));
pictureBox1.Height = (int)(pictureBox1.Height + (pictureBox1.Height* 0.05));
pictureBox1.Width = (int)(pictureBox1.Width + (pictureBox1.Width * 0.05));

For Zooming Out :

pictureBox1.Top = (int)(pictureBox1.Top + (pictureBox1.Height * 0.025));
pictureBox1.Left = (int)(pictureBox1.Left + (pictureBox1.Width * 0.025));
pictureBox1.Height = (int)(pictureBox1.Height - (pictureBox1.Height* 0.05));
pictureBox1.Width = (int)(pictureBox1.Width - (pictureBox1.Width * 0.05));

Google is your friend: Be nice and visit him often. He can answer questions a lot more quickly than posting them here...

There is an article here: PictureBox Zoom[^] - which you would have found, if you had tried even a basic google...

Read the code: the article shows the technique, not a specific solution to your problem: you are expected to do something for yourself! :laugh:

Please help me
Zooming an image is far easier to control if you don't use a picture box. Again, google is your friend.

in VB.Net :
Private Sub Zoom(ByVal factor As Double)
    Dim img_ As Image
    img_ = PictureBox1.Image
    Dim srcbtm As New Bitmap(img_)
    Dim destbtm As New Bitmap(CInt(srcbtm.Width * factor), _
        CInt(srcbtm.Height * factor))
    Dim destGraphic As Graphics = Graphics.FromImage(destbtm)

    destGraphic.DrawImage(srcbtm, 0, 0, destbtm.Width + 1, _
        destbtm.Height + 1)
    PictureBox1.Image = destbtm
End Sub

This isn't a Zoom... this is just a resize...
