#' @param height Image height in pixels
#' @param format The desired image format 'png', 'jpeg', 'svg', 'pdf', 'eps', or 'webp'
#' @param scale Both png and jpeg formats will be scaled beyond the specified width and height by this number.
#' @param out_file A filename for writing the image to a file.
#' @param ... arguments passed onto `httr::RETRY`
