Train pixy from photograph

I am investigating the feasibility of using a Pixy2 to count migrating fish. Has anyone trained image recognition by using a photograph instead of the actual object?

Hey Tom,

your mileage may vary, but you should be able to get decent results with this method, assuming the photo is not too glossy, and assuming the fish are brightly colored.

Here’s more info on what objects (colors) are good candidates for detection by Pixy: https://docs.pixycam.com/wiki/doku.php?id=wiki:v2:teach_pixy_an_object_2
