    Yes, it should be ".... and me" if you are saying, "This is a picture of John and me."

    It is correct to  say "John and I went to the fair."  It all depends on if you are the subject or the object.


    You can always test this by taking "John" out of the sentence.
    ie.  "This is a picture of me."  (You wouldn't use "I " there.)
    "I went to the fair." (You wouldn't say "Me went to the fair."

    Technically, it should be me and ____.

    The sentence, "I went to the store." would become, "John and I went to the store."

    "Thanks for helping me." would become, "Thanks for helping me and John.

    I think we are so used to being told to say "___ and I." that we get into the habit of over-using it just to be safe. I've heard people do the same thing with "whom".

    Yes, I think you're right. It should be the way you set it up in the correction.

    Yes, absolutely. If it is the subject of a sentence, it should be "I"

    Everywhere else, it should be "me"
