I would like to know if IMDb.com is ever going to allow family members to post a picture of their deceased loved one whom was in the Movie Business anytime soon. My daughter died nearly 8 years ago come April 13th, 2016 and she still doesn't have a single picture posted on her profile yet although there are many other pictures of her all over the internet.  People come here to IMDb.com looking for her information and find No picture.  That is pretty sad indeed.

Sorry for your loss.   This is something we are considering, however, we do not support free image uploads on name pages at the moment, sorry.  We would need to make some changes behind-the-scenes to support and manage the images. 

We are going to move this post over to the "idea" section so that it is properly recorded. 

In the meantime, if you have any photos of your daughter in the context of a particular title, you could upload them to that title, let us know here and we can place the most suitable one(s) on your daughter's page by a staff override.  The help page for this service is at https://contribute.imdb.com/help/201989690

Thank You Mr. Col Needham for addressing my question so quickly.  This {IMDb} is all rather new to me, and I am not really sure yet if I have learned to navigate it properly.  I am not exactly sure what you mean by "in the context of a particular title", but am guessing that you mean a title of a movie that she appeared in.  If that is the case I do not believe I have any of those kinds of pictures of her that were taken while she was working on any of the films that she was in.  I do have some very nice head shot pictures of her, and a few of her modeling pictures that are quite pretty though.  Thank You for moving this post over to the "Idea" section if that is where my question actually belongs.  Sincerely,  Julie N. Partch Hawbaker for "Brandi Rose"

Yes, on the photo or screen-grab from a specific title.  Alternatively, if you have a publicity photo taken around 2004 then add it to http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0371734/ by clicking the "+ Add Image" in the "Photos" section.  If the photo is closer to 2002 then instead add it to http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0306831/

You will receive an email receipt from us containing a 16 digit number of the form 160404-YYYYYY-ZZZZZZ.  Please post it here and we will ensure the image is properly handled and tagged.
