Data import overview

Alex Cota Updated by Alex Cota

There are two methods for importing your data to Labelbox:

  1. Direct import. Upload your local files to Labelbox via the app or programmatically via the Python SDK.
  2. Import via JSON. Specify all of the import information in a JSON file such as metadata, queue placement, and external ID. You can import your JSON via the app or programmatically via the Python SDK or GraphQL API.

The Labelbox does not have natively support TIFF imports. However, you can use our cloud function to dynamically convert files in TIFF format to PNG format. For instructions, see your docs on Importing TIFF files.
