My graphic designer wife tells me that graphics are all of the images and non-text representations in a design. Images are the individual pieces that represent the graphics of a design.

Oooh, that earned you a comment in German. And if my translation is anywhere near accurate I hope you're at least a gymnast, if not a total contortionist.

I'd tell you what she said but the image is too graphic. ;)

I wonder if the OP might instead have been referring to the difference between bitmaps and vector drawings. If so please reply, flower, and we'll discuss it. :-)

According to the US Census Bureau almost 75% of those who live below the "poverty line" own a car (31% own 2+), 43% have a 3-bedroom house, 97% own a color TV, 78% have VCR or DVD, 62% have cable or sat TV, 89% have microwave, and over half have a stereo. 89% have "enough to eat", 80% have A/C, only 6% are overcrowded, and avg child dietary consumption is on par with children of middle an upper income parents. Wouldn't it be nice to know if we have any POOR people in this country?

I thought graphics were just moving images.

It depends on the context. In the context of web sites, general/business application development, graphic design, etc, moving images are usually referred to by words like "animation" or "video", depending on whether the source is real-world visual capture (from a camera) or computer-generated imagery. But you will see the word "graphics" refer to moving images from time to time in certain contexts, such as "the graphics in that game were pretty good".

But in the context of the first post in this thread, asking for the difference between "graphics" and "images", it seems likely that the poster was asking for the difference between computer-generated, vector-based drawings, and camera-captured still images. I.E. the difference between a drawing file and a bitmap file.

I've taught a number of introductory computer courses and it's a pretty common point of confusion for newcomers to computers, and it leads to a lot of interesting learning opportunities, e.g. questions like "why is a bitmap so much larger than a drawing?", or "why do I have all that ugly block-like haze all over my internet video?" Good stuff.

But the poster hasn't returned since posting this message so I'm guessing they figured it out by now. :-)
