Four picture editor roles are set to go at two regional publishing centres which are home to three daily newspapers.
Johnston Press has confirmed that the positions are being made redundant in a restructure of photographic operations at its Leeds and Sheffield offices.
Two new audio visual editor roles are being created as part of the restructure.
A number of weekly newspapers are also produced from the Leeds and Sheffield offices.
In January, JP announced it was setting up two new central digital units, with one set to be headquartered in Leeds.
A total of 21 new editorial roles were set to be based there and in Edinburgh, with jobs covering video production, social media, digitally-optimised content, data analysis and team management due to be created.
Johnston Press declined to comment further when approached by HTFP.
