Synonyms of "Pic" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between This pic here is what all of my pancakes LOOK like! and This pic here is what all of my pancakes LOOKS like! ?
A: The words “like” & “seem” only have an ‘s’ on them when talking about a singular thing (so its like the reverse of what you might expect)


Examples:

It seems like she’s angry.
Do those people seem angry?

Your dog looks like he’s scared.
Those kids look like they’re scared.
Q: What is the difference between You should post more your pics on Instagram and You should post your pics more on Instagram ?
A: "Your pics" can mean any pictures you take. They don't have to be of yourself. If you want to say that it would be "You should post more pictures of yourself on Instagram."
The second one makes sense, it's just not how most people would say it in English.

A: @kamonohashi: Same thing,but pic is slang
Q: What is the difference between create a pic by photoshop and create a pic using photoshop ?
A: That may be true... but it still would be way more common and natural to say "using photoshop" :)

(Language doesn't follow rules. Rules are created to describe what language actually does.)

It seems to me that normally the pattern would be "by VERB".

In some cases this is so common that the verb is omitted:

I traveled to Urumqi by [riding the] bus.

With transit this is pretty common.

With photoshop, it's not common and universally understood, so you can't omit the verb.
