Stumbled on this image and it's confusing.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5118450/mediaviewer/rm2783011328

It has a plethora of people tagged yet only 5 people on the image and no names. It has a copyright so does that mean I can't change anything on it? (And add the image is washed out compared to
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5118450/mediaviewer/rm1843848448
)

This is how the stars multiplicity works at the Disney channel ;)
The tags inherited from their name-tags. Or rats?

Having never watched the show (only finding this via one of the actors), I wasn't sure. But I just checked 5 of the non main actors and four of them don't even have a credit for the series. So it seems someone just added these actors at will without any justification.
What I don't know is if I try to remove any of them (none show locked), whether it will go thru or not because there is a copyright listed.
I actually don't think the image should be there at all as there is another image that is the larger version of this.

Further is not an advise. 
I prefer not touching any images copyrighted, especially by companies. IMDb has provided no public policy on the matters concerning such images: the way they being initially contributed, possible auto control to keep them alive and/or unchanged including the tags, and other "ifs". Unless the policy is explained or changed, I consider such as a waste of time for me. So let them be "happy"...

I just checked and 15 of them have no credits for the show at all or the show it spun off from. 3 are series actors and 1 acted in one episode. So strange.

Who can put up an image with a copyright? It looks like anyone but what do I know.

MikeTheWhistle, earlier I gave you some links including this one:
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/spam-like-images

The above topic was started 6 (!) months ago, still having "in progress" status. It was investigated to a wider understanding of the problem, but initially based on 100+ images:
Annie Lennox: No More I Love You's (1995)
Baha Men: Who Let the Dogs Out? (2000)
Howard Jones: No One Is to Blame (1986)
Hurts: Stay (2010)
JoJo: Baby It's You (2004)
Justin Bieber: Somebody to Love (2010)
Mandy Moore: Have a Little Faith in Me (2003)
Mariah Carey: I Still Believe (1999)
The All-American Rejects: Swing, Swing (2003)
..... similar to this one:


it is attached as primary to an original music video of Annie Lennox.
Who are these two to be attached there? -- Nobody. They are not factual there.

Honestly, I've got to feel sick and tired to discuss such problems here on GS, because even those who participate and agree to your opinion then later show they actually understood nothing.

In this case, we can report the above image and the editors will remove it, but then it goes live again a little later. So yes, IMDb struggles to be factual (they delete the wrong image), but then oops! -- other matters are also important (licences, copyrights, client agreement, automation, bots optimization, whatsoever...); but we'll struggle them again, and again, and again...

I get your frustration 100% on all accounts. Guess because only in the last month or so have I taken much time to try and lend my hand to imdb so it's obvious alot of things i see you and others have seen over and over. I really do try and do searches here on gs but either i enter completely the wrong way to search or I don't know what cuz i'll be darned if I can find them until after the fact.
But I appreciate the info because it makes me not feel like I'm alone on that window sill.

My way of thinking is that the photo is indeed copyrighted. But the info that identifies who is in the photo is not. It should fall under this rule.
IMDb aims to be the most comprehensive and reliable source of information on movies, TV and celebrities. We are committed to accuracy and it is our longstanding policy not to alter or remove correct factual information from our records. If you notice an error or omission in our data, please submit a correction or deletion via the "Edit page" button located at the bottom of every name and title page and our staff will be happy to review it and make all applicable changes.

Photos should be accurate too.

Would like a reply from staff on this. Because it sure is not accurate.
My 2 cents worth.
Cheers

lol. i felt brave and went ahead. I'll be curious.
Some of the credits for some of those kids are weird as are the names. Can't say I think they're made up, but they are weird. I'm assuming there are some parents, and I would be one, that don't want their child's last name listed cuz most of them only have a first name. I find it a little strange because the child actors I see normally have both, but maybe it's just cuz they're not big names. I don't know.
