Images appear to be corrupted

Posted by forgetso almost 4 years ago

I downloaded the dataset and upon expansion all of the images are corrupted when viewed on my mac. However, uploading the images to imgur shows that they can be viewed properly.


Perhaps I’m missing certain codecs?

This was a problem with the mac previewer. The images display correctly in GIMP.

Hi @forgetso, I just checked the dataset again. All the images are valid JPEG files in RGB mode, and if you load them into a numpy array they should have a shape of (1080, 1920, 3). The PIL.JpegImagePlugin is what I used to check the validity of all the files.

After you untar the tarball containing all the images, you can read them using the following script :

python import glob from PIL import Image import numpy as np for _file in glob.glob("frames/*.jpeg"): frame_id = int(_file.split("/")[-1].split(".")[0]) _im = Image.open(_file) #If you want the image as a Numpy array _im_array = np.asarray(_im)
