A photo, short for photograph, can only have been produced by a camera. A picture can be produced in any number of ways - paint, crayon, print, etc, etc

A photo is considered an image captured using a type of meterial that absorbs light through a lens (before digital cameras). A picture can be a painting, a drawing, an image in your mind, etc.

A photo is one type of picture, made by a camera. Pictures can be painted, collaged, made by scraper, pencil, chalk, etc. Pictures have been made for at least 35,000 years, photos for less than 190.

A photo is a picture. A picture need not be a photo alone. Apart from being a photo, a picture could be a painting, drawing, a print, an image, movie, etc.

All photos are pictures, but not all pictures are photos. Paintings are pictures, as are drawings and murals. Most Some tapestries are pictures.
