A photo is an image created by light falling on a light sensitive surface, usually photographic film or an electronic medium such as a CCD or a CMOS chip. Most photographs are created using a camera, which uses a lens to focus the scene’s visible wavelengths of light into a reproduction of what the human eye would see. The process and practice of creating the photographs is called photography.
An image or picture is an artifact that depicts or records or visual perception, for example a two-dimensional picture that has a similar appearance to some subject- usually an object or a person, thus providing a depiction of it. Pictures may be two-dimensional, such as photograph, screen display, and as well as a three dimensional, such as a statue or hologram.
