Goal : download google images from your notebook (locally, Colab, etc…) using python
TLDR: run the commands in bold here below
There is an easier way to download google images using the google-images-download python module in your jupyter notebook.
Here are the steps to download the different bears images
First install the python module. In a cell, enter the following command
!pip install google_images_download
Then in the subsequent cells, start downloadig the grizzly bears (-k grizzly argument below)
!googleimagesdownload -k grizzly -l 100
A new folder called downloads/grizzly will be created with 100 images in it (that’s the -l 100 argument n the command above)
Do the same thing for the other images
!googleimagesdownload -k ‘black bear’ -l 100
!googleimagesdownload -k ‘teddy bear’ -l 100
Run the ls command
and you should have the 3 following folders
‘black bear’ grizzly ‘teddy bear’
If you are using the lesson2-download, you can update your path like this (assuming you are using Colab)
classes = [‘grizzly’, ‘black bear’, ‘teddy bear’]
path = Path(’/content/downloads’)
The cell output should look like this
From there, you can just continue executing the rest of the cells.
If you want to keep the original folder names (used in lesson2-download.ipynb) you can rename the new folder names listed here above to match those of lesson2-download.ipynb notebook.
Have fun creating your own classifier!
