Defining Image Categories on IMDb

I have been contributing images from my film paper collection,and occasionally find myself unsure of which tagging category the images belong to -- although, bless you for adding "Publicity" as a category, which has greatly simplified some things. 

1) Easy one:  Should lobby cards be tagged as posters? 
2) Are FOH cards -- (8x10" photos with film title & other credits at the bottom) -- also tagged as posters or as publicity? 
3) Are stills from film frames literally what we know today as screenshots, or are they only the ones blown-up photographically from a single frame of the film? Or both?
4) Would IMDb prefer the images I submit from FOH cards include the film title & credit line at the bottom to reveal the source material, or have it cropped out?

Thank you for your continued help.  I have several hundred more images to contribute, and would prefer to correct any errors before I get too far along.

Lobby cards may be tagged as posters.

Publicity

Still frames are any image taken from footage of the title.

4) Would IMDb prefer the images I submit from FOH cards include the film title & credit line at the bottom to reveal the source material, or have it cropped out?
It should be cropped out. Please make sure you have rights to use the image.
