There is a still photo I want to add, and the other 3 actors want it on their profile as well.  How do you upload this photo and have it appear on all 3 actor profiles without having us all do it individually?  If we each do it individually, there ends up being 3 of the same photo on the films title page.  Were are all three leads in the film.  It's a Lionsgate movie.

Jeff: Has this photo been uploaded to the page for the film to which it applies? I believe you should be able to do that, and add tags to the photo to indicate the names of the people who are in it, which should result in the photo appearing on those people's pages.

Someone who is more familiar with the photo uploading process may be able to give you step-by-step guidance on this.

It doesn’t tag to the profiles of the actor pages unless each actor uploads it individually. But then we have 3 of the same photo on the film title page.

Why can't you just upload the photograph to one person's profile and then tag the other people by editing the tags of the image? Perhaps the photograph would belong to one profile (if it is a resumé photograph), but is that really a problem?

When you upload a photo and tag others in the image, it doesn’t actually show up in their gallery. They are indeed tagged in the image, but it only shows up in the gallery of the person who uploaded it.

OK. I see. I should've noticed that. I might have. If did, then I forgot. Well, that explains why sometimes photos don't show up in some galleries. Thanks.

Hey there,

Thanks for the post.

Images that are uploaded to an IMDb title page will only appear in the photo gallery for that title and are not extended to tagged name pages. This is an effort to protect a person's photo gallery from unwanted user-uploaded images.

Uploading an image to an IMDb name page requires an IMDbPro subscription, if you've claimed a name page - please save a copy of the image and submit this to any claimed name pages individually.

Please note, you'll need an IMDb Pro subscription for each individual page you want to add an image to.

Hope this helps!

Joel
