Some new headshots, most of them corrections and additions out of the latest documented BYs and common names...

Headshots Only

This files includes headshots, which imho are better than the ones included in v10. Why?
- better cropping (head only, but the whole head including most of the hair)
- better contrast (mostly less technical contrast which allows to recognize detail of the face)
- less makeup or role specific applications
- as naked as possible (no shades, no beards, no hats, etc.; but glasses if needed)
- shorter hair, to see the ears and the hairline
- correct birth years (dummies for headshots not availlable, BY overlayed where no other BY needed in the same section - cast/crew)
- correct common names (common name overlayed where common name thread is conclusive)

Amongst many well documented BYs the following fake BYs are included:
Richard Anderson 9017 (Cast)
David Castro 9001 (Cast)
Michael Dunn 9004 (Cast)
Bob Schneider 9006 (Cast&Crew)
Linda Smith 9001 (Cast)
Christian Taylor 9004 (Cast&Crew)
Stephen Walters 9004 (Cast)

Any feedback welcome...

Thanks 

A precision: your Melanie Hill is BY9007, not to be confound with Melanie Hill BY1962.

Yes, both are included. But since there is no third one in our database I did not contribute the fake BY=9007. There is one with BY=1962 and the younger one without a BY.

The problem is that all people who have Melanie Hill without photo in their database will get automatically the photo of BY 9007 even if it is in fact BY 1962... I spent hours in the past to correct such errors coming from headshots files...

Yes, but this is the definition how we have to use the BYs: If we can document needed BYs, then they are in the data base; if we cannot find a BY, it is to be left empty. - The extension to use the 9xxx BYs to differentiate between multiple blank BYs is already an undocumented addition to the rule set. That's why I document such fake BYs in depth, but I don't use them unless they are really necessary.

Everyone who follows the rules should have no (extra) problems with this headshot file, since the 1962 photo is included correctly. Even if you use the fake BY=9007 locally you should not encounter any problem except the obvious one, that you don't get the new headshot for this entry... - Anyone who did not add the well documented BY=1962, cannot blame me for distributing it with this headshot file...

I do not blame you, I blame the rules that accept two different names for same actor, and do not allow to differentiate two different actors with same name. In my collection, I have no BY for Melanie Hill because before your file I didn't know there was another one (I do not own any movie with BY9007). And about documentation for Melanie Hill 1962, that perhaps exists somewhere in the jungle of contribution forum, I have more useful things to do than to try to find it. But as soon as I get a movie with Melanie Hill 9007, CastCrewEdit2 tool would warn me that another actor with same name exists and I'll enter corresponding BY.

Thanks. Nice update with an effort to separate same name actors (ex: K. Kennedy)
