Advanced sizing abilities
You can customize the relationship between the control's size, and its contents dimensions:
- Normal
The contents of the control does not affect the controls size.
- Auto
The control is automatically resized to the contents dimensions.
- Stretch
The control resizes (stretch/zoom) the graphic to fit the control's dimensions.

Image file info
Provides information about the image file such as filename, image's width and height and size of the image file.

Drop target
The control can be set to accept graphic files as a result of a drag and drop operation. Just drop the dragged file into the control and PictureBoxEx will process it and display the graphic or any animation.

Display animations
Allows you to control whether PictureBoxEx will play animations or if only the first frame will be rendered.

Customised background color
You can set the backround to any color. The control will draw the graphic or the animation over this colored background, while keeping any transparency.
