  • To get a photo for a contact, send an HTTP GET request to the photo link of the contact:

    GET https://google.com/m8/feeds/photos/media/DOMAIN/PHOTO_LINK
    

    Replace the following:

    • DOMAIN: The URL for your domain—for example, example.com.
    • PHOTO_LINK: A unique numerical value that represents the photo link for the shared contact—for example, c9012de.

    The server returns an HTTP 200 OK status code and the photo. If a contact doesn't have a photo, then the photo link element doesn't have a gd:etag attribute. The gd:etag element lets you refer to a specific version of a photo.

For example, to get the latest version of a photo for a contact with the following element:

<link rel="http://schemas.google.com/contacts/2008/rel#photo" type="image/*"
        href="https://google.com/m8/feeds/photos/media/example.com/c9012de"/>

Send the following HTTP request:

GET https://google.com/m8/feeds/photos/media/example.com/c9012de
