Continuity mistake: When Mama Imelda is singing on the stage and in the shot where she runs towards Miguel and H├ęctor, you can see several security guards on the stage attempting to apprehend her. However in the next shot that shows Ernesto grabbing her hand, there are no security guards visible. Three of them reappear briefly (the shot lasts about a second but you can see them) but they disappear for the rest of the scene. (01:23:05)

Continuity mistake: When they jump in the pool, they drop the guitar. When they jump out their guitar is no longer in the pool.

Other mistake: When Hector is singing to his forgotten friend, he takes a drink and the drink doesn't exit his body...where does the liquid go?

Suggested correction: It is safe to say this film chose for the laws in the land of the dead to not be followed the same way they are with the living. While it is scientifically correct that the liquid should go somewhere; if we get that technical the film would be a mistake in its entirety as the skeletons should not be able to talk, walk, or drink at all without muscles and other organs. When the entire nature of the film is fantasy, artistic license allows suspension of the laws of real life science.

Answer: It is never really explained in the movie, but we could assume that whenever someone dies they keep whatever items they had on them. Hector may have had the photo on his person when he died.
