What is photographic memory ?
Photographic memory is the ability to recall, absorb and retain the exact image for a longer period of time. It is often confused that Photographic memory is 1 in a million case but that is not true if your child is trained for it from first.
Eidetic memory on the other hand is total recall memory to recall an image from high memory precision for a short period after seeing the image once.
Let us understand both of the concepts through some fun examples.
1- Big Bang Theory
Do you remember Sheldon cooper? Well yes, he had a photographic memory. He use to see the chemical equations and remember them with exact details. Attaching the youtube link of the same for reference.

2- Remembering the exact sequence of series till the work is accomplished is called Eidetic memory. Let me give you a short reference.
You tell your little one the following instructions:-
a- Go to the kitchen
b- Turn left
c- Open the 3rd cupboard
d- Pick up the small spoon
e- Bring it back to me.
I am sure without missing a single step your child will do the following, but will he be able o remember the same sequence after 90 Days? Probably no. So this is called Eidetic Memory.
The ability of photographic memory is linked with high Intelligence.
