This script is used to extract images from a bulk image folder using the image paths. The main objective of the script is to pick images listed in a text file and move them to a different folder.
Importing the required libraries, os, and shutil, which are used for creating directories and copying files, respectively. Then, it creates a directory named “outimg” using os.makedirs() method.
import os import shutil out_folder = "outimg" os.makedirs(out_folder, exist_ok=True) def list_using_move_required_image(imglist): for il in imglist: shutil.copy(il, out_folder) def fetch_image_list(txtfile): with open(txtfile, "r") as file: list = file.read() list = list.split("\n") new_imglist =  for li in list: li = li.split(" ") new_imglist.append(li) list_using_move_required_image(new_imglist) if __name__ == "__main__": image_list_txt = "../assets/train.txt" fetch_image_list(image_list_txt)

The script defines two functions:
- This code is a useful script that helps to extract specific images from a large folder of images. The script has two functions: “list_using_move_required_imge” and “fetch_image_list.”
- The first function, “list_using_move_required_imge,” takes a list of image paths as input and copies the images to a designated directory named “outimg” using the “shutil.copy()” method.
- The second function, “fetch_image_list,” reads a text file that contains a list of required images. It then separates the contents of the file by newline characters and removes any unnecessary spaces between the image paths and corresponding labels.
- The list of image paths is then passed to the “list_using_move_required_imge” function, which copies the required images to the designated directory.
In summary, this script is a handy tool for extracting required images from a large collection of images. The user can create a list of required images in a text file and run the script to copy only those images to a different directory, thus saving time and effort in manually searching and copying images.
