Can you add a profile picture to a IMDb page posthumous?

Sorry if this has been asked before but I was wondering if its possible to add a profile picture to an IMDb page for someone who has recently passed?

Well, doing so requires claiming the corresponding IMDb name page and maintaining the claim, in the sense of being able to manage (on a whim) certain aspects of the page. A person who would've been able to claim it while the page's subject was alive would probably still be able to do so afterward (unless maybe there is some kind of a probate-style dispute). In order for you to be eligible to claim a page about somebody other than yourself, you'd have to be a parent, guardian or agent of that person or be a representative of the person's estate.
