In this article we will see how we can get the image/head-shot of the person from the person object, imdb person object act similar to dictionary therefore getting image from person object is similar from getting required information from the dictionary. 

In order to do this we have to do the following –
1. Get the person object with the help of id by using get_person method 
2. Get the image link from it using result[‘headshot’] as keys 
3. Print the result 
 

Note : Output will be the link of the image i.e string data type not actual image

Below is the implementation  

Python3




# importing the module
import imdb
 
# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
 
# person id
code = "1372788"
 
# getting person object
actor = ia.get_person(code)
 
# printing object it prints its name
print(actor)
 
# getting image
image = actor['headshot']
 
# printing the place
print(image)

Output :
