Using Church leadership images for an app

Postby jubby2000 » Wed Sep 09, 2015 8:43 am

Hi there,

I'm working on a personal project that might include using images of latter-day Prophets and Apostles and others. Similar to President Eyring's image used here: https://www.lds.org/liahona/2015/09/fam ... M&lang=eng.

I have a couple questions about this:
1. Is this allowed? The app that I'm thinking about would be using their images to attribute things they said to them. Images aren't necessary but certainly would make the user experience better.

2. Is there an API or something that would help me query for images and get them back in a usable (possibly JSON) format? Or is there a URI format that I can alter depending on the church leader I'm looking for?

Thanks for your help!

The best place to start with this would be to contact the Intellectual Property Office at:

Phone: 801-240-3959 or 1-800-453-3860, ext. 2-3959
Fax: 801-240-1187
E-Mail: cor-intellectualproperty@ldschurch.org.

or by writing to:

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

If there is, it's probably intended for internal use by lds.org. I've not heard of a API like that.
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.
