    If there was a picture of two girls and on the left was Tayler and on the right was me, brittany, would the caption be "tayler & me" or "tayler & i". i think it would be tayler & me because if you took tayler off it would be just me, not i.

    I have seen other arguments over this. If the caption contains ONLY Tayler and ___, then I would use "me" thinking it was a shorthand way of writing "This is a picture of Tayler and me."

    Of course, if you add to the caption ("Tayler and I take in the sites" or "Tayler and I enjoy a chocolate croissant" for example) then your "remove Tayler" rules works to remind you to use I in situations like that.

    - sounds good to me; and I doubt if I'd have put it so well.
