    A picture could be a painting or drawing.

    Not a teacher only a native.

    Not a lot, they are often used interchangeably in BrE (at least I do).

    Having said that, there are some subtle differences:
    Pictures - could refer to drawings, paintings or other art forms. Created by pencil, crayon, paint etc.

    Photos - Refers to photographs only. Created by a camera.

    This is a most unnatural sentence. Are you sure your native language is English?
