According to psychology, they do not want to let you know that they actually like your picture. Even if they do, they refrain from liking it as they do not want to let you know.
They are not close friends
Some people always like their pictures of their friends, relatives, and acquainted people. They do not hit the like button for the person they do not know much about.
They don’t like the picture
Some people actually do not like your picture, so do not press the like tab. People who regularly like your posts may not like your one post, and that’s why they did not like it.
They un-followed you
Some people might have unfollowed you, due to which they are unable to see your post and, subsequently, like it. (See Why you are suddenly unfriended on Facebook?)

Some people might have missed your posts, and if they had seen it, they would have definitely pressed the like button.
You don’t like their posts

There might be many people on your friend list who do not come online often. They will not get a chance to see your post and hence, like them.
