    Hsve you read post #2 carefully? They do not "have almost the same meaning." A photo is a picture, but a picture may be one of several different things.

    An image can mean different things, depending on the context. As it relates to photo/picture, see definition 2b here. image - definition. American English definition of image by Macmillan Dictionary
