            sExtension = System.IO.Path.GetExtension(sFileName)
            If Trim(sExtension) = ".bmp" Or _
                Trim(sExtension) = ".jpg" Or _

                Trim(sExtension) = ".gif" Or _
                Trim(sExtension) = ".png" Then
                img = Image.FromFile(sFileName)

Use FileStream class:

Public Class Form1

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Try
            Dim img As Image
            Dim sFileName As String = "D:\Documents and Settings\Mansi\Desktop\Winter.jpg"
            Dim fs as new System.IO.FileStream(sFileName,System.IO.FileMode.Open)
            img = Image.FromStream(fs)
            fs.close()
            ImageList1.Images.Add(img)
            PictureBox1.Image = ImageList1.Images.Item(0)
            img.Dispose()
            System.IO.File.Delete(sFileName)
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub
End Class
