as I got around 6k positive images, is there a possibility to resume the annotation tool? like started where i quit the last time and continue annotating the images? It'd take hours to finish this job...

Thanks in advance.

sadly, this feature is not yet built in.

you could try to hack the tool by say: read in the annotation file, skip though already seen images, continue where you stopped, and append to annotations.

but for now, i'd recommend a much simpler approach:

  • look at your current annotations file, find out, which was the last parsed image, then:
  • move all already seen images into a temp folder (so you won't annotate them again)
  • start tool again with a new annotation file, and work on remaining images.
  • once you're finished, concatenate the 2 annotation files, and move images back to original location

Thank you, that should be a possible approach. Didn't think in this way.
