I don't know of any surviving relatives who pay to have a photo on IMDb of their deceased loved ones. Every time I see photos submitted via IMDb Pro, it's for a (wannabe) actor, but that's not the situation the OP talks about.

I do. and it is not nice to throw the word wannabe around like that in a derogatory manor.

Marco, I kinda agree with Ed on this one: "wannabe" is derogatory and "aspiring" is a much better term which is nearly synonymous.

I don't see anything derogatory in the term 'wannabe' (and therefore didn't mean to cause any offend) and the word 'aspiring' seems to me a bit of a case of euphemistic language. It reminds me of this great bit from the late George Carlin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuEQixrBKCc

That said, if it makes you all feel better, I'll stop using the word 'wannabe', no problem.

Marco some terms become more derogatory when you think about them. In this particular case as the term is often used in negative connotation, it seems as so wanting to be an actor or filmmaker or whatever is wrong, something to be ashamed of. Mere use of the word is a part of a larger problem: the fact that film industry is considered a ghetto of sorts by "serious" professions.  

There is a similar case in Russian language which plagues it a lot - word "умничать", which suggests that mere demonstration that you know something and aspiration of being smart (word basically means "say smart things") is something one should be ashamed of. For me it's very derogatory. It triggers me nearly every time I hear it. Wannabe might be not as bad, but over the years mere suggestion became rather similar when the word is used. And in the world where one can become an actor or a filmmaker via YouTube and actually convert into professional the word is a bit outdated, as well.

Wannabe
A poser, follower, a charlatan of sorts. One who copies or imitates all or most of the aspects dealing with their idol. They may wish to have certain clothing, skills, vocabulary, etc., of their idols instead of their own. Most likely a wannabe is lacking in self confidence and is looking for guidance.
The wannabe frequently quoted popular phrases from his favorite rock star.

I'm very impressed with these credits:
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0829329/

Unfortunately, IMDb policy changed a few years ago, and the only photos that will post to a Name page (like the one above) are those provided by the "owner" of the page, a paying IMDbPro subscriber, and those photos only endure so long as the subscription payments are maintained.

Perhaps an exception can be made for an Oscar-winning screenwriter who died in 1999 by using the IMDb Contact form, and providing the URL to the Name page and URL(s) to the desired photo(s).

If you have behind-the-scenes photo(s) you can attach to a title, including Oscar ceremony photos, anyone can upload images to title pages for free. And then when someone looks for images via google, they'll see something on IMDb.

Best of luck!

I forgot to mention: when you upload to a title, be sure to tag the image with the Name(s) of the person(s) in the photo in order for google to retrieve it in a search.

Hi there,

Thank you for contacting us.

Unfortunately, we do not currently offer the option to post a single/ multiple photo for any unsubscribed filmography page on our site. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.

Please bear in mind that an IMDbPro subscription is required to display photos and/or detailed professional information on filmography pages at this time. If in the future, we create a memorial service to display photos for friends and loved ones who have passed away, we'll announce it prominently on the site.

Thank you for your understanding.

No. Most photos in the database of deceased people (my guess would be about 95 per cent) have not been added by family members. I don't have exact numbers because as far as I know, IMDb doesn't disclose these figures.

Obviously there are people in the database of which IMDb doesn't have the date of death. (the same is even more true for dates of birth)

I think it's shame to miss information due 5o fees. I'm new to this and don't know if a paying member could add the photo in question. No drawing and quartering of the suggester please. Just askin for a friend

Yes, a paying member can post photos to the page he has claimed and paid for. But the photo will vanish if he cancels his paid membership. Hence my advice above:
