In this context, there really isn't any difference between the two words. They can be used interchangeably as long as "picture" is defined as "imagine." Here are some example sentences where "picture" and "imagine" are interchangeable. Ex: Picture this, you are in a world where there is no pain. Ex: I want you to imagine a bright and sunny day. Ex: Could you picture a future of us together? Ex: Imagine a city that is run entirely on reusable energy!
