Bulk Import Photos to records

Hi Tulip Team,

Is it possible to import photos to a tulip table? The format I currently have the data in is an csv sheet that contains the file path. I can run some code to get the images into the excel view of the csv but that doesn’t carry over to the tulip table, is there another way to accomplish this?

Is there any way to do this currently?

Hey @btsang

Sorry for the delay getting back to you, this one slipped through.

This is very possible with the Tables API. Here is a good document that will get you started using the tables api:

My preferred language to do basic software work like this is Python. Here is some example code that encodes images to text, then uploads them to a table.

If this is your first time playing with the api, or python, this would be a great topic to cover in a future office hours session:

Hope this helps!
