I see the error of your ways:
In "She is the one who took," she is still that person who took the photos, even though the taking of pictures happened yesterday. Yesterday only sets the time frame for the action she performed. When she did does not matter. What counts she did, so she is the one who did it.

1.she is the one who took the picture yesterday.
or
2.she is the one who took the picture.

thank for the information. I still have one question.
which is correct?
1. she is singing yesterday.(is this accepted?)
or
2. she was singing yesterday.

Only correct version:
She sang yesterday.

'Yesterday' requires the past tense. Neither present nor present perfect are correct.

but why is that "she is the one who took the picture yesterday" correct,
if 'yesterday' requires a past tense?

Yesterday does not refer to "She is the one". She took the photo yesterday, but she still IS the person today.
If you take the sentence apart you will note that there are two parts:
She is the one - main clause - present tense
... who took the photo yesterday - relative clause - past tense.

because she took the picture yesterday (past tens). You can't say, she take/s the picture yesterday, but she was, has been and still is herself :)

But you can say Yesterday when I entered the room, she was singing. Both actions happened in past and you can use past tens simple or progressive.
