TD 01: Natural Ground Textures

This dataset contains multi-photo texture captures in outdoor nature scenes — all focusing on the ground. Each set has different photos that showcase texture variety, making them ideal for training a domain-specific image generator!

Overall information about this dataset:

  • Format — JPEG-XL, lossless RGB
  • Resolution — 4032 × 2268
  • Device — mobile camera
  • Technique — hand-held
  • Orientation — portrait or landscape
  • Author: Alex J. Champandard
  • Configurations: 4K, 2K (default), 1K

To load the medium- and high-resolution images of the dataset, you'll need to install jxlpy from PyPI with pip install jxlpy:

# Recommended use, JXL at high-quality.
from jxlpy import JXLImagePlugin
from datasets import load_dataset
d = load_dataset('texturedesign/td01_natural-ground-textures', 'JXL@4K', num_proc=4)

print(len(d['train']), len(d['test']))

The lowest-resolution images are available as PNG with a regular installation of pillow:

# Alternative use, PNG at low-quality.
from datasets import load_dataset
d = load_dataset('texturedesign/td01_natural-ground-textures', 'PNG@1K', num_proc=4)

# EXAMPLE: Discard all other sets except Set #1.
dataset = dataset.filter(lambda s: s['set'] == 1)
# EXAMPLE: Only keep images with index 0 and 2.
dataset = dataset.select([0, 2])

Use built-in dataset filter() and select() to narrow down the loaded dataset for training, or to ease with development.
