Readme: headshot-images

An image set of head-shots of FT Journalists for use with bylines.


As with all image sets, these are available via the Image Service.

To get an head-shot from the Image Service, use the following URL (replace the product_source with your product name and headshot_name with the head-shot you want)


So to get Robert Shrimsley:

The source file for these images are all very large, so it's a good idea to pass in the width parameter to get the width you need.

Getting these headshots in a different colour/format/size

The Image Service will convert these images on the fly if you pass in the right parameters. To find out more about this, please see the Image Service documentation

## Adding or modifying headshots

To keep head-shots consistent, please follow these guidelines:

Please do not delete head-shots without talking to the Origami team who will need to manage the deprecation process
