I noticed that the infamous anime Bible Black from 2001 had no images for it. When I went to add a few in the photo gallery there was no option to add images like their usually is. Am I missing something or has the "Add Images" option been disabled for this particular work due to its content?

Hi Dante -

I had trouble locating the title page you referenced, can you post the link to the IMDb title page here so our staff can take a look?

Bible Black
(It is in the "adult" genre, which makes it slightly harder to locate.)

Hi Dante -

As Jeorj mentioned above, this is an "Adult" title, this is why the option to upload images via the IMDb site is not displaying.  Images for this series can only be uploaded and submitted from the IMDbPro site

Hi, Michelle. Wait. You mean that the only way to get images into the Bible Black's IMDb image gallery is to tag the title in an IMDbPro image? But then how is it possible to assign a primary image to the gallery? No locked image can be the primary image of a title. I also don't see an option to upload at https://pro.imdb.com/title/tt0369277/images. Is this a glitch? I'm confused.

Hi All -

I'm just following up here to confirm that the ability to upload images via IMDbPro was a glitch that has now been disabled.  Apologies for the earlier confusion/miscommunication, as it stands our policy is that we don't allow images to be uploaded to adult titles.

Since "Bible Black" is categorized as an "Adult" title, images cannot be uploaded for this title.

O, okay. I suppose that title entries like https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0148332/ (page for La Blue Girl) are grandfathered. It probably had gallery items before it was tagged as adult entertainment. This is all very interesting.

Hi Jeorj -

Concerning the title you referenced, yes, it's likely that the image was listed prior to the title being marked as "Adult", as such I have now removed the image from the title page to adhere to our policy.

The images for that title predated the current user image upload feature, so are you sure the rules for that feature are relevant for those images?

That title has had images for more than ten years. My guess is they came from Amazon, but there was also the old Poster Services feature.

Hi Peter -

Yes, it's possible that the images were added prior to the title being marked as "Adult", or the image was provided by Amazon and slipped through.  Either way, as our current policy is not to display any images on Adult titles, the proper action is to remove the image. 

If you encounter any other adult titles on the site with images displayed, please report them and our editors will promptly remove them.  Cheers!
