If images are assigned to a property from a resource, is it then a reference to an image instance in the resource or is it a new instance?
The code might look like this...
this.MyImage = global::MyProject.Properties.Resources.SomeImage;
The thing is that I have to be very careful about new instances and would therefore like to reuse the same images. I have got a suspicion that a new instance is created when referenced as above.
