Where is the picture? In a PictureBox that is on the form? If so, then
you have to place the Line control INSIDE of the PictureBox. There are
two ways to do this.

First method... after placing the Line control on the form by
double-clicking it from the ToolBox, cut it from the Form by selecting
it (if not already selected) and then pressing Ctrl+X, then select the
PictureBox and paste the Line control into it by pressing Ctrl+V.

Second method... don't double-click the Line control in the first place;
instead, click on it once in the ToolBox to select it, then click and
drag the mouse directly in the PictureBox to place the Line control
directly within the PictureBox.
