Pictures — one million — taking long time (6)


I believe the answer is:


'pictures' is the definition.
(I know this)

'one million taking long time' is the wordplay.
'one million' becomes 'im' (resembles am, a million).
'taking' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'long time' becomes 'ages' (I've seen this in another clue).

(Other definitions for images that I've seen before include "Representations or reflections" , "Reflections in a mirror" , "Pictures, representations" , "Pictures; metaphors" , "These doubles could be spitting" .)
