Uploading images to WineEngine

Before uploading your reference collection images to WineEngine, you should make sure that they are properly sized. WineEngine supports images up to 1000 pixels on the smaller side for fingerprinting. If your images are larger than that we recommend that you resize them before submitting them to WineEngine for indexing, because smaller images will make the uploads faster.

Images are added one at a time using the add method. Images can be uploaded directly to the server or you can specify a URL where the image is located and the WineEngine server will download it from there.

The WineEngine API can perform one add operation at a time. Any extra requests submitted will be queued up for processing as slots become available. While adding images one at a time might seem slow, in practice it is possible to load over 100,000 images per day. So even very large collections can be added in a reasonable amount of time.
