            // Get rid of any previous filename
            openFileDialog1.FileName = "";
            openFileDialog1.ShowDialog();
            // If the user clicks CANCEL the filename is blank 
            if (openFileDialog1.FileName != "")
            {
                // Load the selected picture into the picture box
                picShow.Load(openFileDialog1.FileName);
                // Display the name of the file
                Text = openFileDialog1.FileName;
            }
        }

        private void mnuExit_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            // End the program by closing the form.
            this.Close();
        }
    }
}
