So tấm ảnh = image and bức ảnh = photo, or are they interchangeable?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/vngdhuyen

yes they're interchangeable here. bức is a subset of tấm, referring to anything thin, flat, and rectangular. tấm/bức ảnh (photograph), tấm/bức tranh (painting), tấm giấy (sheet of paper), bức thư (letter), tấm gương (mirror), tấm/bức màn (curtains)...

So "that is a beautiful photo" is also right?

Interchangeable.

Thank you. I thought pẻhaps tấm ứa more abstract, bức for a flat sheet of something, so that helps
