From my experience, the terms/expressions "object recognition" or "object classification" are synonyms for "image classification" (also known as "image recognition").

Should we make "object recognition" (and "object classification") a synonym for "image classification"?

I think so, but, after a quick look at some of the questions tagged with "object recognition", it seems that some people used this latter tag also for questions that involved the task of "object detection", which is a different task. So, either I am wrong that these are synonymous (I don't think I am wrong), or, before merging these tags, we should probably revisit these posts and remove the unnecessary tags.
