    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".

    Thus:

    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,

    MrP
