I heard that adding a photograph to an existing profile of an actor requires that that actor have an IMDB Pro membership account. Is this correct? I have an IMDBPro account already but I have a friend who's an actor and I'm trying to find the answer for him.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi Brent -

Yes, that is correct.  Photo submissions are handled through IMDb Resume Services, which is a service offered as part of a subscription to IMDbPro.com.

Thank you Michelle. If someone becomes an IMDBPro member and uploads their photo, do they need to permanently maintain their IMDBPro status in order for the photo to stay online? What happens if their IMDBPro membership is not renewed? I'm asking because funds might be limited at this time for my friend.

Yes, in order for Resume data and Photos to remain on the site, that individual will need to maintain an active IMDbPro Subscription.  If the subscription is canceled or expires, the Resume data/photos will automatically be removed from the site.
