Animations ain’t photographs, now are they?

When a site, displaying shots from an all digitally animated film, refers to the pictures as “photos” I have to admit I feel a bit… well, I think they should feel a bit… I mean, please: it is a picture all created by digital technology, without the use of light. A photo? No. It’s a picture all right, but it ain’t a photo. It just ain’t a photo. It can’t be. Please, please petty pretty please, don’t go all stupid on us. It just isn’t worth it. Get real and get your terminology right.
