I have my own IMDB profile and have my headshot on the site as well, BUT the boxer Saul Alvarez and I have the same exact name, so since he has a bigger name (for now), they have my headshot with his profile. How do I go about fixing this??

You mentioned you have a photo on the name page of the boxer. Are you listed in the credits of a project? If you already are, then the photo will need to be moved to the correct name page.

If you do not have a title listed on IMDb, then a new name page will need to be created.

How would I go about switching that photo to my profile?? And of course, I can’t control his page to change the photo.

Saul: For clarity ...

1. Are you the person with the page of Saul Alvarez, with no accents, at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm7206909/?

2. Am I correct to say that the page for Saúl Álvarez with accents on his first and last name at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3892870/ refers mostly to the boxer?

3. Are the two photos which can be found at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3892870/mediaindex of you, not the boxer? (The boxer has red hair, so I am assuming that those pictures are not of the boxer.)

4. Are any of the credits on the page at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3892870/ yours? It looks like most of them belong to the boxer, and maybe all of them, but I can't be certain.

Once we clarify these items, we should be able to advise you as to how to move the photos and make any other corrections, as necessary.

Yes! All of the above is correct; I’m WITHOUT the accents and those two pictures on his page are mine. For extra clarity, my credits include The Post, Set It Up, etc.

Saul,

It appears that both photos are locked so an IMDb contributor cannot submit a correction. An official IMDb representative will need to move the photos to the correct name page.

Thanks for confirming.

Hi Saul -

I can confirm that the issue was that your Resume account was incorrectly linked to the wrong page. I have now adjusted the images and your resume account so they should be moved to your correct page here shortly.  Cheers!

Thank you Michelle!

I’m still noticing my profile still doesn’t have my headshot in the main “profile picture.” Any idea as to how I do that?? And it also does say I’m not verified on IMDBPro.

Hi Saul -

Check your page again now and you should see a primary image on your page.  If you want to change the primary image, you can always do so through your Resume account (you can find additional information on updating Resume photos here).  Cheers!
