Here’s the code I used:

import requests
from PIL import Image
import io
import cv2
response = requests.get(df1.URL[0]).content

im =

The image is very large. Is there a way to fasten things?

I’m not sure, if it’s possible to speedup request calls, and I think you might get a better answer on e.g. stackoverflow, as this is not PyTorch-specific. :wink:

Thanks I’ll do that.
