If you are using VS you can drag an OpenFileDialog, 3 buttons, textbox and a picturebox to your form.
With your first button (Browse). In this buttons click event add

OpenFileDialog.Title = "Get Image"

Go back to your form and double click the OpenFileDialog. Add this code

textbox.text = OpenFileDialog.FileName

go to your second button (Upload) click event and add

if (textbox.text.Trim() <> "") Then
PictureBox.Image = Image.FromFile(textbox.text)

Finally in the third button (Remove). Open the click event for this button and add.

Picturebox.image = Nothing

this should take care of browsing, displaying path, uploading and removing the image from your form.

add/drag opendialog control in your form , one label (for path view), one picture box (for image view) and one button (for browse image).
in your button browse add this code :

With OpenFileDialog1
            '.InitialDirectory = "C:\"
            .Filter = "All Files|*.*|Bitmaps|*.bmp|GIFs|*.gif|JPEGs|*.jpg"
            .FilterIndex = 4
        End With

        If OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog() = DialogResult.OK Then
            PictureBox1.Image = Image.FromFile(OpenFileDialog1.FileName)
            PictureBox1.SizeMode = PictureBoxSizeMode.StretchImage
            PictureBox1.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Fixed3D
            lblFilePath.Text = OpenFileDialog1.FileName()
        End If

you can change the filter index to set image extension at first open. in this code filter index = 4 will set to jpeg, so when first open just jpeg image will shown. change filter index as u need.

Ok. all for the best
