    The expression

    What is the expression I can use if one of my friend looking at a photo says I look so ugly in the photo, and I think he looks uglier than I do?

    "We need to talk about yourself?

    Thank you.

    Re: The expression

    "Look who's talking!"
    "Said Mr. Universe"
    "Have you looked at yourself?"
    "Then ugliness is contagious, just look at you here!" (pointing at a photo where he appears especially ugly)

    Native speakers will probably give you (and me, too) more alternatives.
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    NOT A TEACHER

    - You're a fine one to talk.
    - You can/should talk!

    Or "Screw you. I clearly need better friends. Goodbye."

    From a grammar point of view, don't you "yourself." Use "you."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
