According to Thomas Blount’s Glossographia Anglicana Nova the definition is
”Image, (Lat.: Imago)
artificial resemblance either in Painting or Sculpture“
Of course Photography couldn’t be mentioned in a Book that’s been published in 1707. Photography is a technology that was first invented in 1888 and took a while to spread over the continents. This Image technique we love to use, had many miles to go, to be available in every modern telephone.
A modern Image
is something that’s seen, captured, taken, made, described, interpreted, praised & censored, denied or accepted… and always under progress. Wikipedia’s own incomplete definition isn’t more or less accurate based on the fact that this technique can be used in a thousand different ways. Basics might be similar and even tools like Adobes Creative Cloud are some kind of standard, but on top of that — the processing is still so complex, that there is room for all kind of visual expressions
…and we do create images as well.
