In the picture 字面意思是“在图片里”，但实际想表达的意思是了解具体情况和事态的来龙去脉。我们通常说 “keep somebody in the picture 使某人了解详情”。
- Jane kept me fully in the picture so I knew what to expect when I attended the meeting.
- Please keep me in the picture. I need to know how the project is going.
- I‘m not really in the picture any more when it comes to the news. I‘ve stopped reading newspapers.
值得注意的是，如果说某人 out of the picture，意思就是此人已经与某事不相干了，没有关联了，也不再重要了。
- Bob‘s out of the picture for this job, he‘s been off sick for weeks.
- Sadly she‘s out of the picture. Her English isn‘t good enough.
