My friend posted photos of me that I dont want on my IMDB! Now he doesn't know how to remove them because there is no option. However, when I go to my IMDB, the photos are there. How can I remove them?

If he subscribes to IMDb Pro and has claimed your page on his own, checking off that he "represents" you, and then he uploaded the photos to your gallery, he can go to your page (in the Pro version/view of the site), click the "my page" tab near the top of the screen, choose "photos" and each will be shown with a link at the bottom of each to choose to "set as primary photo," "edit" or "delete." He should choose "delete" to remove it.

If he did so, using your log in credentials and IMDb Pro account, you could log in and do the same.

If he used an unrelated Pro account and will not be managing your page, he can "unclaim" the page using the http://pro.imdb.com/startover_confirm link, then you or your rep can "claim" it and manage the photos as you wish.

Thank you for the reply. However, these photos aren't in the photo section. These photos are when I log into IMDB pro. Then I go to my main page. One of the tabs says Media. Once you click on that 5 photos come out. How do I remove these photos? Not photos that are in Photo album but photos that are in Media alubum? Thank you again!

Adela: Are these photos visible to you at all when you are logged out of IMDb? If they are, please post a link to them. But if they are only visible to you when you are logged in, then at least that implies that the rest of us can't see the photos that you don't like.

Adela: Thanks for the links. These photos are supposed to be under the control of whoever has claimed your IMDb page, that is, whoever has the IMDbPro account that has the power to add photos to your page, whether that is you or your friend. If your friend added them, then presumably he should be able to follow the instructions in Bluesman's first post above to remove them.

If he still can't figure out how to do that, I will try to call the IMDb staff's attention to this thread and hopefully someone will be able to help him or you. (The IMDb staff posts here mostly on weekdays, so don't expect a response from them before Monday.)

No, those are not supplied via the Resume system or they would be listed as Official Photos, and these are not.

It looks to me like these may have been submitted in the same way as photos from IMDb's photo partners. Is HIgh End Productions a photo partner of IMDb's?

I think you have alerted them. However, they didn't delete them. They made them the primary photos. So now, all my professional and good pictures are deleted. And the bad pictures that I want deleted are now primary.  What should I do?

You should wait for the appropriate team to respond. The other actions likely occurred in the mean time in reaction to your removal of the pictures you'd had added via Pro.

FYI, nothing happens real-time here. It all takes time. Remember, there are millions upon millions of pages to this site.
