Add Images


My mother and my godfather, both now deceased, have imdb pages with no pictures. I have pictures of both of them that I would love to add.

Do you know if I can do this myself or do I need to contact administrators or something?

Hi, overdraft. Welcome to the IMDb Community forum! I'm sorry to hear of your loss. In the case of your mother (Patricia Leith), the best that you can probably  do on your own is create an IMDb member account on her behalf, sign up for IMDbPro Standard subscription and use the account to claim the IMDb name page about her; a process that will allow you to manage the feature images on that page as you see fit. You would have to repeat this process for every deceased person on whose behalf you're authorized to act, such as being the executor of his or her estate. If you're the executor of your godfather's estate, then you can repeat this process for him (Ted Stidder) as well. Thank you, for sharing their photographs and names here, as the information may be helpful to an IMDb image partner if such a person or company happens to see this thread. The many unclaimed IMDb name pages that happen to have pictures up are due in part to the contributions from these kinds of partners, but alas, not every unclaimed name page is going to benefit from this attention or related phenomena to the same effect.

Hello overdraft,

Additionally to what jeorj_euler mentioned, the "Add Image" option is only available on IMDb title pages (i.e. movies, TV shows, TV episodes, video games, etc.). Adding images to name pages requires an IMDbPro membership - to learn more, please see Adding photos to IMDb.

@overdraft : I'm afraid that for now, all you can do is vote for this thread: https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/profile-photos/5f4a79fb8815453dba9423da

Very nice photos by the way!
