Staff -- I need some clarification with this 'Help Center image FAQs'

I added an image to my favorite title, making sure to tag all the actors in the photo.  The image appears on the title page but not on the actor's page.  Is this correct?

Yes, user supplied title images are only visible on title pages.  They will not appear on name pages.  Adding images to name pages requires an IMDbPro subscription. To learn more, please see Adding photos to IMDb.

 They will not appear on name pages.  Adding images to name pages requires an IMDbPro subscription.

Does it mean after the image has been uploaded to a title and tagged the image will not appear on free accounts (name pages), but will on IMDbPro accounts (name pages)?

If so is this process automatic -- does the image after tagging automatically show on the IMDbPro members name page? 

Thanks for the help.

Hi Tom,

Thank you for reaching out. Images that are uploaded to an IMDb title page will only appear in the photo gallery for that title and are not extended to tagged name pages. In order for an image to be visible on an IMDb Name Page, an IMDbPro subscription is required and the images would need to be loaded directly to the IMDb Name Page.

Thanks
Meredith

Hi, Meredith. I wanted to let you know that there are some cases, perhaps glitches, in which images tagged with a person's name become that person's profile image. I think, what may be the issue is that images uploaded before a certain date will conform to the old convention which perhaps does not conform to your (for lack of a better word) claims.
