Hi, agof. The IMDb staff has the technical capacity to change it. Please understand that the resultant thumbnail will look like smaller variation of the following image (the title being pushed out of frame):

 

The ability for the cropping to be finely tuned does not yet exist. I recommend that a proper poster be uploaded to the IMDb image gallery for the show.

Hi, agof. It's best if your feedback regarding the content of help pages is as detailed as possible.

the help page is focused on the new feature of changing the primary image IF it's a poster, but most of the current content is created for streaming services like youtube or proprietary apps, and have no posters. best case scenario they have official logo titles in 16:9 aspect ratio, but for the rest you can only use a still frame of a title card from inside the show.

why would rewrite help page when the issue is the functionality? no change to the help page can change that you can change title image only if you upload an image as a poster even when it is not
