    Question Who or whom?

    I just wrote my response to friend, but I have two questions:
    Should I use who or whom in this sentence and the photo has been done or was done?
    This sentence is correct?

    "I found this photo on my phone, but I was so drunk that i don't remember when (probably after the concert), how and by whom it was done.
    I need to stop drinking alcohol".

    Re: Who or whom?

    "... by whom it was taken". ​However, note that in something like a text message, that can sound overly formal. I would probably word your text like this: "Found this pic on my phone. I was so drunk I've got no idea who took it or where or when! I really must stop drinking!"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
