--- Comment #24 from Jay Philips <philipz85 at hotmail.com> ---
After skimming through <
> and <
> and noticed that you had capitalized instances of the word 'image' that
shouldnt be capitalized, like for example - "Contains specialized data for
internal Image filter.", "Contains information about a linked file, i.e. an
Image file.", "Some OLE objects could only be saved as Images.". So it might be
good to make sure all the replacements are suitable when in sentences.

Just my two cents. I think the word graphic is suitable when referring to both
images, object shapes, etc, while picture or image are both suitable for an
image from a file. Some people would call a picture something they take with
their phone or draw on a paint canvas, while other would use the word image for
those same to things.

MS Word - Picture
WPS Writer - Picture
iWork Page - Photos
