This post is intended to kick off a multi-part series on building an image processing pipeline. Presented here is an outline which will be updated and modified along the way.
My motivation and the goal is to build a process that ingests photos (currently from a mobile device), sort them into multiple categories, and perform an independent task on each photo after sorting.
The secondary goal is to build a toolkit of scripts for each of these tasks that are reusable in the future.
The programming will be in Python.
- Mobile image capture device (iPhone)
- Program to sync photos with a computer (BitTorrent Sync)
- Directory spy to process newly synced images
- Final result
Progress so far:
Numbers one and two are easily crossed off the list. I have created a directory spy (item #3) in the past, but it needs to be reviewed and modified to work here.
