We successfully loaded the first batch of horticulture images from Dr. Mary Peet, Professor, Department of Horticultural Science, NCSU. These 716 images are part of a 3,000+ image collection; we hope to add the remaining images in batches throughout June.
All images were resized to 600×800 which added consistency and reduced the storage size from 2.3 GB to 170MB.
Thanks Dr. Peet for the contribution.
