    photo captions

    1.Please help! which shall I use?I want to display my pictures on the net with photo captions, should I use present tense or past tense for photo captions?The action that my friend is seeing was in the past when they view my photo right?pls help.

    ex: I'm singing in the picture..caption: " I was singing"

    2. I'm also confused with the use of pronoun me for captions. Is it right to say "that's me on the right side" , how about when I use pronoun "I" instead of "me"?What shoud my caption be?

    3. how about caption for the picture of my bro and I, Is it right to say, "My brother and me? " or should it be "my brother and I ". Thanks! please help.

    Re: photo captions

    1 You can use either tense- it depends on whether you think the action is past or the photo is present. I personally would probably use the present- 'this is me at ...'
    2 'That's me' sounds much better than 'that's I'.
    3 If the caption is just that, then 'my brother and me' sounds better to me.

    Re: photo captions

    thanks so much! is this right? " My friend is laughing because he was singing when something weird happened." that's my caption.
