Problem: In the last 4-5 month after I add new poster to the film it only added to the images and not replaces main picture. Even if main picture is not a poster, or have worse quality or horizontal image.

Why it could be like this? Before there was not such problem.

Example: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8461390/?ref_=ttls_li_i  . I added poster for this movie today.

When I added this film as example, image on you screenshot was not main. It is the poster that I added today. And it was just in the images category, when picture that now not main was the main one.

And the problem not only with this film, but with every film I add a poster to.

Screenshot with another example. I added poster to this film about 2-3 months ago. And it is still in the images, and main picture is not even a poster.

Thanks for the first. The second one on your screenshot is entirely different movie. The right one is here https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2022497/?ref_=fn_ft_tt_6 .

As I said earlier, several months ago main covers were changed if the new poster was better. Now they are not. Every time. And I really want a resolution for this.

I can't really add every film here for someone to change images. Sometimes it is a lot of posters. And it would be inconvenient for everyone involved.

Thank you a lot. Am I right that you did this through contribution? I didn't see this option in the edit menu. So, I could do the same for the other movies. It's great.

You can upload an Image as a poster image, but that does not make "IT" the poster image. It's just "TAGGED" as a poster. See this example. These are all posters. You have to select one as a "MAIN" Poster. Also you can see four are mis-tagged as Posters.

Select one of those posters to view it full screen. See the "EDIT TAGS", select it.
This screen comes up. If it is not blocked as this title is there is a box you can check that says "Make this the main Poster" Select it and Submit
