This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

"Look at the four pictures" indicates a specific set of four pictures to be viewed. For example, "Look at the four pictures on the screen right here."
"Look at four pictures" on the other hand, doesn't specify any particalur pictures to be looked at. "Your assignment is to look at four pictures by Impressionist painters."
