5 Movie Photo, Celebrity Picture, and Movie Poster Resources

Celebrity pictures, movie photos, and movie posters will eventually pop up up on your movie website in some way, form or shape during the course of your film website being online. Film casting stories, movie poster releases, movie photo posts, etc. will all require the images – the visual stimuli – that is the subject matter of the story. Rather than scrambling all over the Internet for one or more images you need, wasting your valuable time, we have collected some of the best image sites in one post to curb your search time.

Google Image search

Obviously, Google has more images than any other resources on the Internet. Simply go to Google, type in the name of the person or film you are searching for and select Images at the top left of the screen. All the images for that term (related by tags, name, alt text, etc) will show up. The more specific you are, the more specific the results will be e.g. year.

AllMoviePhoto

A good debut of alphabetized movie photos, though I usually use Google image search over this.Kelly Brook, Piranha 3D 2010, France Premiere

Starpulse

Good for stock celebrity photos at film premieres, special occasions, events et cetera. The site is also tabbed so that you can search it by category: television, movies, celebrity, news, music, and a few others.

IMDb

Great resources for movie star pics and images for films and TV shows. IMDB has disabled copying images (right clicking and selecting Save Image As) but there is a way around that. If you are using the Firefox web browser, download the add-on Screengrab for it and take pictures of the pictures on IMDb. If you don’t use Firefox, try the programs HyperSnap (PC) or Snapz Pro X (MAC).

ActressArchive

Type in any actress’s name into the site’s search engine and a deep archive of photos for that actress will be at your disposal, far more than on IMDb.

There are many other movie photo, celebrity picture, and movie poster resources out there that we will be posting in the future. By subscribing to us, you will not miss out.

  • Good post. There is a typo in the line: "IMDB has disabled copy images (right clicking and selecting Save image as) PUT…"

      Thx for the heads up.

    Thanks for the post. I don’t know if I have missed something but a friend warned me about using images gathered from Google images, IMDB and other similar sites because of legal issues. Apparently lots of images have watermarks and there are legal ramifications if you use the images without permission from the copyright holder. The alternative is to pay but this can prove quite expensive to someone just starting out. It would be interesting to explore this subject a little deeper for the benefit of all of us.
