    I am not sure what you are trying to say, but the following is idiomatic to me: This is so me. Jul 23, 2016 at 3:40

    Wouldn't "This is so me!" refer to a characteristic rather than an image? Jul 23, 2016 at 4:44

If you are actually in the image and it is clear that you are in the picture, then you might simply say

That's me!

If it is clearly you in the picture, but you are doing something that you think is typical of you—like if you are a goofy person, and you are making a funny face in the picture—then you would say

That is so me!

If there is some doubt that you are actually in the picture, but you are confident that it is you, then you might say

That is so me!

If you see a person in a picture, and it is clearly not you, but you think the person represents you— like your looks, or your personality, or something like that—then you could also say

That's so me!.

I believe that in each instance, this and that are likely to be interchangeable.

  • I hate to pile on, but did you really mean to write "If you see a person in a person...?" Didn't you intend to write "If you see a person in a picture...?" Moral: compose your answer in a text editor, proofread it, then post it. Jul 23, 2016 at 4:47
  • Ah, don't worry. Peer review is part of the SE structure. I can assure you that I proofread my posts, but as you can imagine, typos slip by. Also, there is a preview before posting, and it doesn't help that I'm very sleepy. 😁
