Hi, Andy Stretton from Zegami here, I am interested in improving the talk I am doing about datapackage pipelines. What I would like to know is whether there is a preferred style for adding images to datapackages.

@strets123 what kind of images? Graphs of stuff or just simple pngs / jpgs?

Would be simple jpegs - each data record could have one or more of them. I am creating datapackage pipelines to download data from various open data APIs and there are images which I want to do local processing on e.g. tensorflow etc.
I also have some other use case like an image which is then cut into a set of sub-images and a measurement made on each, as in recognising cells on a microscope slide.

@strets123 so you can images as your resources (or tar/gz them together). If you want to associate an image to a resource or a data package you can use the image tag http://specs.frictionlessdata.io/data-package/#image

Is there a tag in tableschema to say that a column refers to an image?
