This article is about the pictures of villagers given to the player. For the pictures taken by the player, see Photo.
A player next to several villager pictures in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

A picture is a piece of special furniture, introduced in Animal Crossing: Wild World, given to the player by a villager, most often their best friend. The picture has a portrait of the villager and can be interacted with. Once selected, it reveals a quote either unique to the villager (one example is Tangy's picture, which talks about citrus) or their personalities or species.

The majority of players assume pictures originated in Wild World. However, the idea started from the original Doubutsu no Mori and its port, where Nook's portrait can be received in the monthly lottery. Additionally, the idea of favorite sayings and a basic profile originated from the e-Reader cards, and, in the Japanese release of Animal Crossing, the favorite saying would appear on their e-Reader card.

In Animal Crossing: Wild World, there are 150 villager and 6 special character picture furniture items. They do not appear in the catalog, and do not have a color or genre, despite their colored frames. They can be put on top of tables, fireplaces, etc. They all take up one space in the player's house, and cannot be sold. They are worth 3,200 HRA points each. When dropped outside, they appear as the same green leaf that other furniture items do. These pictures are obtained by befriending the villagers. Once given, a picture is the player's forever, even if the villager moves away.

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, villager pictures are generally obtained randomly after completing a task for a villager. If the player befriended them, they may also send a picture with their goodbye letter. They can also be obtained on April Fools Day by telling which villager is the imposter. The pictures are considered 'lucky' items (worth 7,777 points) by the Happy Home Academy, but this bonus is only awarded if the villager is a current resident in town. Villager pictures may be sold for 10 Bells at Re-Tail, although it is advisable not to do so.

In Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, villager pictures can be used to decorate clients' houses. They are typically unlocked by designing a house for the corresponding character, though some pictures can come in sets even if the depicted villagers don't live together. For example, Chrissy and Francine, due to the two being sisters.

In Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, a villager's picture can be obtained when friendship with the player reaches level 20.

In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, pictures are now refer as photos and now have more unique look than in previous games. They now have dynamic background and villagers may be dressed to different outfit rather than their default. The player also receive posters for purchasing via Nook Shopping by inviting villagers and special characters to Photopia. Special characters, are in the amiibo cards and figures but not in the game, also have posters.
