How to Add Online Images to Jupyter Notebooks
Jupyter Notebooks are a powerful tool for data scientists to showcase their analysis and insights. They allow for the integration of text, code, and visualizations in a single document. One of the most important aspects of data analysis is the ability to display images. In this blog post, we will discuss how to add online images to Jupyter Notebooks. You can use Jupyter notebooks for free online at Saturn Cloud.
Step 1: Obtain the Image URL
The first step in adding an online image to a Jupyter Notebook is to obtain the image URL. This can be done by right-clicking on the image and selecting “Copy Image Address” or “Copy Image URL”. Alternatively, you can open the image in a new tab and copy the URL from the address bar.
Step 2: Import the Necessary Libraries
In order to display the image in a Jupyter Notebook, we need to import the necessary libraries. We will use the
IPython.display module to display the image. Here’s the code to import the necessary libraries:
from IPython.display import Image
Step 3: Display the Image
Once we have the image URL and have imported the necessary libraries, we can display the image in the Jupyter Notebook. Here’s the code to display the image:
Replace the URL with the URL of the image you want to display. You can also specify the width and height of the image using the optional
Image(url='https://example.com/image.png', width=400, height=300)
Step 4: Display Multiple Images
If you want to display multiple images in a Jupyter Notebook, you can use the
display function. Here’s the code to display multiple images:
from IPython.display import display display(Image(url='https://example.com/image1.png')) display(Image(url='https://example.com/image2.png'))
Step 5: Display Images from a Local Directory
If you want to display images from a local directory, you can use the same code as above, but replace the URL with the file path of the image. Here’s the code to display an image from a local directory:
Step 6: Display Images Inline
By default, Jupyter Notebooks display images in a separate window. If you want to display the images inline, you can use the
set_matplotlib_formats function. Here’s the code to display images inline:
from IPython.display import set_matplotlib_formats set_matplotlib_formats('png', 'pdf')
This will display all images inline in the Jupyter Notebook.
In this blog post, we discussed how to add online images to Jupyter Notebooks. We covered how to obtain the image URL, import the necessary libraries, display the image, display multiple images, display images from a local directory, and display images inline. By following these steps, you can easily add images to your Jupyter Notebooks and enhance your data analysis.
