I see both words used on modern websites. Do 图片 and 照片 mean the same thing? Are there cases where they are not interchangeable?

  • 图片 means picture, 照片 means photo, i.e. pictures taken by camera. – songyuanyao Mar 14 '17 at 8:03

    There will always be situations when 2 different expressions are not interchangeable. Therefore rather than asking whether 2 expressions are interchangeable why not ask when they are interchangeable? (In the present case there clearly are contexts when they are:bkrs:图片:image picture photograph CL:张[zhāng]).Alternatively ask whether they mean the same thing.总是会有两个词句不可互换的情况。 因此,与其问两个词句是不是可互换的,不如问什么时候(在什么情况下)(它们)是可互换的。(此例中显然有时这两个词是可互换的).或‌​者另一种选择,问该两个词句意思是不是一‌‌​​样的。 总的来说 – user6065 Mar 15 '17 at 8:07

No, they are not interchangeable.

照片 is only the ones taken with a camera. 图片 can be any picture.
