PictureBox[] pbs;
void textBox1_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs)
    int num =0;
    if(int.TryParse(textBox1.Text, out num))
        pbs = new PictureBox[num];
        int x = 20, y = 20;
        for(int i = 0; i < pbs.Lenght; i++)
            pbs[i] = new PictureBox();
            pbs[i].Name = "pictureBox" + (i + 1);
            pbs[i].Location = new Point(x, y);  //location point
            pbs[i].Size = new Size(300,200); //custom!!

            //setting new point for next pictureBox:
            //this code will put 2 pictureBoxes in a row 
            //if more then 2, next two will be put in a new row:
            if(i % 2 == 0)
                x = 20;
                y += 220;
                x += 320;

This is only an example code, you can position pictureboxes by your way.
Hope it helps.
