Today I got an email with this ear-centric photo.

Image, photo or picture what is an easy way to distinguish?
An image, photo, and picture are often used interchangeably to refer to a visual representation or depiction of something. However, there can be slight nuances in their usage depending on the context. Here’s a breakdown of how they are generally understood:
Image: In a broad sense, an image refers to any visual representation, whether it is a photograph, a digital graphic, a painting, or any other form of visual content. It is a generic term that encompasses various visual mediums.
Photo: A photo, short for photograph, specifically refers to an image captured using a camera or any other photographic device. It typically implies that the image is a realistic representation of a scene or subject captured through optical means, such as with a digital or film camera.
Picture: A picture is a more general term that can refer to any visual representation, including photos, drawings, paintings, illustrations, or even digital graphics. It is often used in a broader sense to describe any visual depiction, regardless of the medium used to create it.
In everyday conversation, these terms are often used interchangeably, and the distinctions between them may not be significant. However, if you want to be more specific, you can use “photo” when referring to an image captured with a camera, and “picture” or “image” when referring to any visual representation more broadly.
