where does the image come from? if it's from a file then just reload it on the other form.
you could also save it to a temporary image file and reload it this way

1 solution

Create a property on Form2 which sets the Image on it's PictureBox:
public Image Image
   get { return myPictrueBox.Image; }
   set { myPictureBox.Image = value; }
Then set it via the instance of Form2 that you create in Form1:
Form2 f = new Form2();
f.Image = myForm1PictureBox.Image;
