    ..."her and me"... because "who" is the subject, "deleted" the verb and "the picture of you and me" the object.

    To "double-check", lose all the extras: "Who deleted me?" ("Who deleted I" sounds quite weird, yes?)

    Who deleted the picture of her and me.

    The best way to determine which to use to take out the other subject from the sentence.

    If you eliminated the word her, who deleted the picture of me would be correct. That's how you decide.

    Hi,

    Grammatically, the two pronouns are objects of the preposition "of," so you use the objective case, her and me. As a practical matter, just eliminating one of the pronouns will usually tell you which sounds correct if you're a native English speaker. Despite all of that, the statement would sound a little better if you said, "Who deleted the picture of Janet (or whoever it is) and me?"

    It's me, actually. Just omit "her". Who deleted the picture of me? That's the test, omit the other person.

    I'd just say: "who deleted our pictures?"

    Who deleted the picture of her and I? is the grammatically correct one.

    the second one sounds better to me then the first one does.
