The picture we often say refers to a container that quantifies and stores color information. Since texture is also a container for storing data, it is naturally not limited to color information.
For example, you can also use it to store various information such as height texture channels, normals, etc., and for example, the elements I store do not come from outside, but I will give him a function when I sample. Let him do it himself, can it? it is also fine.
So strictly speaking, the texture is a picture. This sentence is not correct because after all, the texture is not necessarily a picture. Then, in addition to the specific stored information, a texture object also contains some settings for texture sampling.
