    Question Out of picture?

    A lot of people stood to benefit with his out of picture...

    What does "out of picture" mean in this sentence? Thanks!

    Default Re: Out of picture?

    If the expression was "with him out of the picture" it means that he is no longer a factor in the situation. He is gone, or no longer in power or influence.
