One photo is worth a terahit.
The base unit metric prefixes for non-fractions and
their US nomenclature are:
kilo (10**3 or thousand),
mega (10**6 or million),
giga (10**9 or billion),
tera (10**12 or trillion),
peta (10**15 or quadrillion), and
exa (10**18 or quintillion)
-- where ** means "to the power of."
