PicStork is a powerful platform used for image analysis. Every project should have an imageset uploaded in a proper way. All types of images are allowed to upload for processing except .bmp files.
The set of images forms an "imageset". For processing through PicStork, the user has to upload an imageset to get better accuracy of results. For every project, there should be a separate imageset provided. If the same imageset is to be used, the user can duplicate the image set and use it with a different name.
Process for uploading images as data is simple. The time taken to upload images will be dependent on the file size which is ultimately dependent on the contents of the image.
