It doesn't make sense to me when I heard " wasn't in the picture yet" in the following sentence. Does it mean " wasn't born" even though the meaning of it in the dictionary is " get involved in"? Please help and thank you in advance.
" ...Payton wasn't in the picture yet, we just got Olivia who was one year old at the time. Now she is 5 years old...."
To be "in the picture" means to be involved in a situation. In the context, it is logical to mean Payton was not born at that point in time.
