When do I use “I” instead of “me?”  
John, Valencia, and I (or me)?

I found a photo of Sarah, Thomas, James and I?

OR

I found a photo of Sarah, Thomas, James and me?

"I" subject pronoun, photo "object", "me" object pronoun - or not as the case may be?

I believe it is "me" not "I" but can you provide why this is so in terms of sentence structure.

Thank you

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Simple rule: If it's the subject of the verb, use I. Otherwise, use me.

In the sentences you provide, I is indeed the subject of the verb found.

The other pronoun at the end, however, is not the subject of a verb, so it should be me.

(Probably this question will get closed because it's too basic, but this is the simple answer.)

No, it will get closed because it gets asked at least once a week. (^_^) –  RegDwigнt May 21 '12 at 18:58
