How to Download Pictures That are Uploaded to Canvas

Jump to solution

Hello,

I need to pull students photos from Canvas in order to create a sign in page for a program I am running. Every time I go into their profile and try and copy or save the photo, it either saves a grey avatar or it saves the entire page. Is there an easy way to pull photos from Canvas?

 

Thanks

Hi @ZacharyGayner 

If you use the Users API (https://canvas.instructure.com/doc/api/users.html#method.users.api_show ), you can grab the user details with "GET /api/v1/users/:id", and the user object that is returned will include the URL for the avatar.
