Instructions[change source]

  1. Go to npg.org.uk and search for the person you want
  2. Click on the correct link to go to the details of a picture of the person you want. Be sure you are getting the right person
  3. Below the picture and its details, the sitter and the artist should both be listed.
  4. Click on the link for the sitter
  5. The page URL should look like:
    https://www.npg.org.uk/live/search/person.asp?LinkID=mp#####
    where "#####" indicates a number.
  6. Copy ONLY that number (be sure to remove the "mp" and to keep all the zeros)

    {{NPG name|id=#####|name=Name}}
    where "#####" is the number you've copied, and "Name" is the person's name

  2. Click on the link for the first picture
