Is imdb going to streamline the process people have to use in order to submit a photo correction? Your site is wonderful and very popular, but it should also be reliable.

Photo identifications are often incorrect, and the way to submit information is roundabout, and seems to change frequently. Character names often are substituted for the actor names, or people misapply the names on the basis of racial or ethnic profiling.

A button on each photo page that could open a window for updating photo information would simplify it for the people providing their time for free to improve your website, and would probably simplify it for your people, trying to track down a photo and investigate the suggested correction.

That would be handy.

At the moment the best that can be done is to report it here and/or post on the dedicated thread on the Contributors Help forum (there is usually one that gets a lot of traffic):
