Concepts

Moving a file

A file that gets moved from one directory will now reside in a new directory. This is similar to moving a file in Windows.

Copy a file

A file that gets copied is similar to normal copying, in Windows with one exception. You may choose to copy just the raw data (ie the image), or the full file (including the instances.)

If instances are copied, than both the raw data (ie the Image) and the instances will be copied. Else, only the raw data is copied.

This is useful for the class imbalance problem. You can all your images once, and then make a copy without instances, and create the new class on the copied data.

Inversely, this is also useful to test variations in data. For example, you could copy the instances and then edit them, ie adding removing, modifying etc. to see how that effects the results.

Mirror a file (Add to set)

A mirrored file acts the same in all directories it's in. For example, if add an instance to the file in directory A, that change will be in directory B too.

This is useful for creating data sets, especially when you expect the underlying data to change. This is the opposite of copy - changes are mirrored between the file in every directory it's in.

This is the preferred way to create datasets and is
faster than copying the entire file.

Choosing destination directory

Use the selector to choose a destination. The source is automatically your current directory.
