Add Primary Photo for Deceased Performer?

Hi, I am would like to add a photo for a dancer who worked in the 1940s at MGM named Dorothy Tuttle, who sadly died in 1998. She has a robust IMDB page and I have acquired some photos from her son and it would be appropriate for her to have a profile photo on IMDB. Can anyone suggest a method to get a primary photo associated with her IMDB page?

Thanks!

Hi @derek1939 -

Currently only IMDbPro users with a claimed name page can add pictures to their name page. Feel free to vote for this idea post.

Cheers!

Thank you for the response! 

How does that work if the person is long desceased? Who has the authority to add a picture to their page? 

If I were to send the photo the admins would someone be able to vet the photo and add it to Dorothy Tuttle's IMDB page?

Thanks!

@derek1939​ Hi! Only a person related to the deceased person could claim the page. We can't upload the photo for you either. As mentioned that is the only option to upload photos to a name page, reason why users created the above idea post.

Cheers!

Thank you, that makes sense! I will ask her son to do so then, thanks!
