Can a photograph be submitted to a deceased relatives profile on IMDB?

Is there a way to add a photograph of my deceased father to his Bio on IMDB? He was a cinematographer/cameraman.

Hi @Kimbals,

As per our guidelines regarding managing images:

You will need an individual IMDbPro membership for each name page that you wish to claim and upload assets to.

If you already used your membership to claim your own page, you will need to sign up for another account (using a different email address) to claim another page.

I hope this helps!

Hi, Kimbals. Because the decedent was your father, you should be eligible to claim the page on behalf of his estate. If you are also the executor of his estate, then you're even more likely to be successful at this process. Once your claim is approved, you can then upload acceptable images at will and remove them at will, assigning one of them as the official primary image for the profile, while being able to change it too whenever you want.
