confused - It doesn't say photo specifically in the english, why is "cette image vaut des millions" wrong?

In my opinion you could translate picture as "le tableau" as well

Tableau should be acceptable, since it is more likely what it is referring to. I can't say I've ever heard of a photo being worth millions, but many paintings are!

Yes, misleading - a "picture" implies a "painting", especially in the context of millions!

Photo is too restrictive in our multmedia world. Image should be accepted.

In French, a painting is referred to as tableau or peinture. Take a look at linguee.fr (a very valuable tool) and see how it's translated there.

"photographie" est refusé, c'est pourtant le mot exact :| "photo" n'est que l'abbréviation

"image" is not the same as picture?
