Suppose I have 7 numbers of ".jpg" files in a folder. All the names are numeric that is 0.jpg, 4.jpg, 1.jpg etc. How to read the files sequentially according to there name incrementally. That is first 0.jpg then 1.jpg then 4.jpg will be read.

I have tried with glob( ) function but image read is not sequentially..

#include <opencv2/opencv.hpp>
#include <dirent.h> 
using namespace std;
using namespace cv;
int main()
String folder = "*.jpg";
 vector<String> filenames;
 glob(folder, filenames);
 cout<<filenames.size()<<endl;//to display no of files

  for(size_t i=0; i<filenames.size(),++i)


and the output is as follows 7 // no of files in the folder ./0.jpg ./11.jpg ./14.jpg ./2.jpg ./6.jpg ./8.jpg ./9.jpg

apart from VideoCapture(), - if you'dsave your files with leading zeros, like 00007.jpg, you could sort them properly

you'd need to modify your saving code, so it eg. uses format("%05d".jpg) for the filename, then you can just std::sort() the filenames vector from glob.

but again, try with VideoCapture first !
