 What do you think about this:
"Hopefully, this paper will add to the state of the current literature."
Not sure about the comma.....

Hi, Any (or almost any) technical documentation is abounding with phrases such as "as shown in Picture 1 ..." or "Figure 2 depicts ..." It just occurred to me that I don't quite understand what differs "picture" from "figure" (in technical writing). If you ...
 "Figure 1", "Figure 2" etc. is the normal style. To me, in your context, "Picture 1" etc. seems inferior. I'd be surprised to see it used in a professionally produced technical document.
