telegram.InputMediaPhoto

class telegram.InputMediaPhoto(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: telegram.InputMedia

Represents a photo to be sent.

Parameters
  • media (str | file object | bytes | pathlib.Path | telegram.PhotoSize) –

    File to send. Pass a file_id as String to send a file that exists on the Telegram servers (recommended), pass an HTTP URL as a String for Telegram to get a file from the Internet, or upload a new one. To upload a file, you can either pass a file object (e.g. open("filename", "rb")) or the file contents as bytes. If the bot is running in local_mode, passing the path of the file (as string or pathlib.Path object) is supported as well. Lastly you can pass an existing telegram.PhotoSize object to send.

    Changed in version 13.2: Accept bytes as input.

  • filename (str, optional) –

    Custom file name for the photo, when uploading a new file. Convenience parameter, useful e.g. when sending files generated by the tempfile module.

    New in version 13.1.

  • caption (str, optional) – Caption of the photo to be sent, 0-1024 characters after entities parsing.

  • parse_mode (str, optional) – Send Markdown or HTML, if you want Telegram apps to show bold, italic, fixed-width text or inline URLs in the media caption. See the constants in telegram.constants.ParseMode for the available modes.

  • caption_entities (List[telegram.MessageEntity], optional) – List of special entities that appear in the caption, which can be specified instead of parse_mode.
