Gemita Samarra GettyImages

On the media gallery for Gemita Samarra (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5106314/ ) there are quite some photos with a very clear GettyImages watermark on it. I know I can submit a deletion request for them, but I feel it is more useful if a staffer would contact the person who added these photos to point them toward the guide for this kind of stuff. (https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/images-videos/image-guidelines/G27LPBQZA7EAZGJW?ref_=help...#, where it says "We do not allow the following: Images displaying third-party ownership or branding, such as watermarks. Watermarks of the title's creators, such as the production company or TV channel, are acceptable")


Also, given the sheer number of photos that shouldn't have been accepted in the first place as well as the fact that this problem has occurred to several titles and name pages as well (see https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/the-fugitive-series-gettyimages/6148a1fc61ce8f5a6f19977c  ,  https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/natasia-demetriou-gettyimages/61006a3604219236a14638da ,  https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/texaco-star-theatre-starring-milton-berle-gettyimages/60f5f7c29aff7e729198b1c2 ,  https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/kathryn-newton-gettyimages/60956adb758f933b8d5650b2  ,   https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/carla-renata-gettyimages/608f2693f5cc1541df887557  ,  https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/peter-pan-gettyimages/6070d846a9d33801cdb5edf0  ,   https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/leave-it-to-beaver-gettyimages/604514a632c631317bb7a378 ,   https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/data-issues-policy-discussions/the-jack-benny-program-gettyimages/5fb03b2f7fd3a810dc2dcd1b , https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/mark-allen-gettyimages, https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/toast-of-the-town-gettyimageshttps://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/help-gettyimageshttps://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/laverne-shirley-gettyimages , https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/happy-days-gettyimages, and https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/mork-and-mindy-gettyimages ), I feel it's IMDb's duty to clean up this mess.

These are the photos:

I noticed a couple recently for Natalie Davies - IMDb

This Getty Images image which is currently the profile picture https://www.imdb.com/name/nm6497611/mediaviewer/rm107383809/

And this Getty Images image https://www.imdb.com/name/nm6497611/mediaviewer/rm1010655488/

Better options for Natalie Davies profile pictures include:

This https://www.imdb.com/name/nm6497611/mediaviewer/rm1027432704/

This https://www.imdb.com/name/nm6497611/mediaviewer/rm2257934592/

This https://www.imdb.com/name/nm6497611/mediaviewer/rm1536514304/

Or this https://www.imdb.com/name/nm6497611/mediaviewer/rm1083529472/ (I would choose this, although they're all decent)

Some other profile pictures which could be improved by changing the photos, or moving the frame of the photo, so that the person in question fits in the frame fully, you can clearly see it's them, and they're the only people in the picture, include:

1 - This which could be moved to the left https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0263099/mediaviewer/rm3493872128/

Or be changed to...

2 - This could be moved to the left (I would choose this) https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5649091/mediaviewer/rm1596466176/

Or be changed to...

3 - This https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0493347/mediaviewer/rm3084256768/

Which would be better changed to...

4 - This https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0864436/mediaviewer/rm2105962496/

Which should be changed to...

5 - This https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0233893/mediaviewer/rm939860224/

Which should be changed to...

6 - The left half of this https://www.imdb.com/name/nm9033458/mediaviewer/rm1634299392/

7 - The right half of this https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5519350/mediaviewer/rm1549914112/

Or could be changed to...

8 - This https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005014/mediaviewer/rm380082176/

Which needs changing to...

@daniel_francis_gardecki Natalie Davies has two GettyImages on her page. As you can see in my OP as well in the other links I've added, I personally don't create a post here in those cases. I only create a post here regardering GettyImages when a title or name page has about ten watermarked photos or more. In cases like the page of Natalie Davies I would simply send in a submission. In my experience, these photos then get deleted within a few days. 

Some other profile pictures which could be improved

You do realize that this has nothing to do with my OP right? It might be a better idea to create a new post for this issue.

Thanks for flagging these.

 

I can confirm these images have now been removed and the necessary precautions been taken.

 

Regards,
