Some more questions: And can the same be done for TV shows on their imdb page if they contain nudity? How to add pictures for TV shows?

Also if a web series is listed as TV series can that be changed?

We allow the following:
  • Sexually suggestive, but non-nude (e.g. the cover for Sante D'Orazio Photographs)
  • Tasteful adult bottoms (e.g. the cover for White Women by Helmut Newton)
  • Non-prurient child partial nudity (e.g. Sally Mann)
  • Mild infrequent drug use
  • Infrequent or mild medical or treatment-focused content
  • Infrequent or mild references to alcohol, tobacco, or drug use
  • Simulated gambling
  • Frequent or intense profanity
  • Frequent or intense realistic violence
  • Frequent or intense horror-themed content
We do not allow the following:
  • Partial nudity (e.g. female nipples) regardless of context
  • Frontal pelvic nudity
  • Anuses (tasteful adult bottoms e.g. buttocks/cheeks are ok)
  • Prurient nudity (e.g. fondling, implied masturbation, or implied sexual contact between two or more people)
  • Sexually suggestive or prurient images containing children
  • Blatant prurient activity
  • Pornography, or images related to pornographic titles, whether they contain nudity or not
  • Realistic sex toys, sex toys in an erotic context, or implied use
  • Excessive gore. Yes, we allow frequent or intense realistic violence, but we have our limits.
  • Feces or urine
  • Real life death
  • Book or Magazine covers
  • Soundtrack covers
  • Paparazzi photos
  • Fan art
  • Leaked images, 'revenge porn', or any images taken under the agreement/reasonable assumption that they would remain private.
  • Personal contact information
  • Any personal information about children under 13
  • Product or service advertisements
  • Images for which you do not own the copyright or have the necessary rights
  • 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.
  • Poor quality images. Please refer to the in-depth guidelines on this below.
  • Unnecessary quantities of very similar still images from the same scene.
  • Spoilers, e.g. an image revealing a major plot twist from later in the film, such as a dead main character.

Hello, Mohit Mago. 

Adding to Ed's excellent answer (sourced from Image Guidelines, which contain more useful information on images) as of current TV series is assigned to both TV and Web series. It is considered a controversial decision by many in the industry, but considering that a significant bulk of modern television could and should be technically listed as web series (everything by Netflix and DC Universe services would be a great example) and the fact that services like YouTube house more and more professional and semi-professional productions, drawing the line between web and TV while these two are in the process of merging into one conglomerate might be erroneous.
