File type for images

What is best format file Avro or SequenceFile, to store images in HDFS and process that data with Python?


Re: File type for images

You can use either format. I'd prefer Avro cause its schema also allows you to efficiently store other metadata related to each image's bytes, alongside the image itself (if there is such a need).

Python also has native Avro data file support.
