Human memory has a striking characteristic of remembering things better with pictures as compared to words. It was proven several decades ago that most of the people can remember more than 2,000 pictures with at least 90% accuracy when they are tested with recognition tests after several days, even if they have a short presentation time during learning about a picture.

A picture is of more worth than words. Many people have very good photo recognition memory even if they see the picture after a very long time. Remembering faces is also an excellent ability but some people cannot remember a face and can mistake people for their appearance. Trying to recognize people from the picture can be an interesting and fun activity.
