Difference Between an Image, Photo and a Picture

By KaleemK on September 23, 2023

Many people consider an image, picture or photo to be the same thing, but there are differences.

  • Image is a visual object modified or created by a computer or mobile device.
  • Photo is a visual image of any object taken by a camera or a photocopier.
  • Picture is a drawing, painting or artwork created on any physical device or a computer.

Photos and pictures can be called images if they are used on a computer or mobile device.
