How do I update my poster?

Title Poster Images

A "poster" image can be displayed in the top left of the title page - otherwise known as a "primary" poster. You are able to submit more than one poster to a title, but can only have 1 'primary' poster at a time. Your choice should strike a good balance between the following criteria:

  • Movies: The most iconic and widely-recognized poster, of the best image quality. English language posters are preferred if available, although we may exercise editorial discretion to override this in some special cases.
  • Episodes: Still frame of acceptable quality which best represents the episode's plot or key characters in that episode.
  • TV Series: The most iconic and widely-recognized poster, preferably from the original airing of the first season. The poster should be of the best image quality. English language posters are preferred if available, although we may exercise editorial discretion to override this in some special cases.


If you think a title should have a new 'primary' poster and it does not appear in the titles gallery - see how to correctly add a poster below. Alternatively, if it does exist - jump to modifying an existing primary poster.

 

Adding a new poster image 

Key points

  • Should there be an existing 'primary' poster and the new image is to be used in it's place - follow the modifying an existing poster steps below once your new poster is approved and in the gallery.
  • Only images uploaded with the aforementioned type "Poster" are eligible to become display posters - the type cannot be changed once the image is live.

  •  At the end of the titles gallery.

3) Click "Add Image" in the new pane that appears on the right hand side.

4) In the drop-down menu ‘Select a Type’, ensure you click "Poster" (any other type and this cannot be used as a primary and cannot be amended later).

Modifying an existing primary poster

Key points

  • Important: DO NOT ‘report’ the existing 'primary' poster – this image will automatically reorganize into the gallery as a non-primary poster.
  • Important: Only images uploaded with the aforementioned type "Poster" are eligible to become posters - the type cannot be changed once the image is live. 
  • If the existing display poster is incorrect – you must request a new poster to replace the current image first. Submitting a request to delete the existing 'primary' poster, before the new one is live will result in your contribution being discarded. 

 

Instructions

1) Navigate to the title page gallery.

2) On the right hand side, refine by “Poster” image type.

3) At the bottom of the page click the  button.

4) On the right hand side you'll see the option to set the image as a Primary Image:

  

(Important: If there is no option to suggest an image as a primary, it is the wrong image type and cannot be selected)

5) Click Submit and this will be sent to an editor for review.
