Primary Images Added with Title Scorecard?

As I'm slowly getting familiarized with Title Scorecard and I wonder: whether every image added to a person's gallery is reviewed as a potential primary one by editors?

I am especially intrigued by the fact that vertically oriented pictures seem to be given priority as they crop better. Is the first vertical picture appearing in one's gallery a priority in that matter?

Hi Nikolay,

The type is what selects the primary image - a poster will become the primary over stills etc.

If you have more than one poster you will see an option on the secondary poster image to select it as the primary for the title.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Will

Great thanks for answer, Will but I was asking more about how images added through Title Scorecard appear on Name pages (probably should have used that in my formulation for less confusement). 

For example, this still is now a primary photograph on Yaroslav Kozak's page. Will it remain such if a better still with vertical orientation will appear on some title?

From what I am seeing, the first image added of a person through Scorecard will become the primary if they do not already have a headshot. If this is true, then it is important to try to upload the images in a specific sequence with the best headshot option uploaded first. There also does not seem to be an option to adjust centering -- either manually or through facial recognition. So, I think it is on us to be mindful of alignment as we upload those first images of talent.

I just noticed some other interesting behavior with Title Scorecard images. If a person does not yet have a headshot, then the first image of that person added through Title Scorecard becomes that person's profile picture -- IF the image is of the right type.  Stills from the production work; posters do not. We have not yet added behind the scenes images, so I do not know how those behave.

C Park, as someone who uses title scorecard regularly for my own productions I can say that it's not always the case: it might also be that the more people are in the still the less likely it will become a primary/headshot image.

I should have added that these are for images with only a single person tagged in them -- both in the case of posters and in the case of stills.
