What is the difference between an image and a photo?

Following tutorial 3. I selected photo, because I was handling photos. Tutorial says to use image. Why?

image is a Bubble built in simple type, Photo is a composite type defined by you (it can have fields), the user (even if it’s a tutorial, it’s still you that defined it).


I don’t understand.

Ah. Yeah, I got it after a while. Came back here and you confirmed it. Custom types I create will show up in this this. Picking Photo could have made some weird sort of recursion happen. No?

No, a photo can have a field that is a photo. The weird recursion would be if you define an actual thing whose field is itself.
