List of public faces datasets

There are lists which address not available or outdated faces datasets. Below is the list of datasets available for academic / non-commercial usage, if not stated otherwise.


If you encounter problem with downloading images from provided list, you can do as follows:

$ cat urls_list_with_data.txt | awk ‘{ print $5 }’ > urls_list.txt

this command takes five column from file (the one with url) and saves to separate file facescrub_actresses_urls_list.txt, so you can download it with wget:

$ wget -i urls_list.txt

where -i options is used to get urls sequentially or:

$ cat urls_list.txt | parallel -j 20 –gnu “wget {}”

to spread task of downloading files among 20 threads.
