Picture is one of the best and efficient tools in geography teaching, especially in the early period of geography education. Using pictures will help students to train themselves to obtain better geographical skill, in telling location, orientation, distance and scale. But systematic application of picture in textbook is difficult task. A test using 8 color pictures and 18 questions for primary school students is conducted in order to understand their comprehension of the picture. The results review that the students (basically without training) response the questions with diversified answers, particularly, for those questions that need special trainings. It is suggested that education geographers shold put more time and effort in this aspect in order to improve picture application in geography teaching.
