    For use on the web, it is an image. A picture is what you hang on your wall.

image: mostly related to digital photo. More technical term

picture: can be digital photos , paintings. Less technical term

If you are expecting people to upload their photo,paintings most appropriate will be Picture If you are expecting people to upload photo of things ,most appropriate will be Image.

its also depends on context:

Technical Issues , customer feedback etc: use Image Less Technical like Profile Pics etc: Use Picture


The bigger question is who is your audience.

In word, Excel, etc; they use the word "Insert Picture". In Adobe Photoshop, where users mostly know the different types of images, uses "Insert Image". So, the answer to your question lies in the audience.
