    Hi there,

    Is it correct to say like this?

    John: Which one is you in the photo? (correct or not?)
    Mary: The middle one

    Hello Peter,

    If you are both looking at the photo at the same time, there's no need to say "in the photo".


    1. Which one is you? The one in the middle.

    But you might be more likely to hear:

    2. Which one is you? That's me in the middle.

    Best wishes,
