December 3, 2018 API Announcement

To speed up the getPerson, getTermStudents, and getStudentInfo requests in the vast majority of cases, we’re changing them to not return profile picture image data by default. Anytime you want the binary image data included, you can pass in the return_image_data parameter with a value of 1, but be aware that doing so will make each request hundreds of times slower.

    For clarification: if we call GetPerson with return_image_data = 1, is the call any *slower* than it was previously? Or now we just have the option to make it faster?
