I'm re-training the existing model with new categories: the types of clothes (jeans, pants, blouse, and so on). Since we don't need colors to determine the type of clothes that user is wearing, I want to re-train it with gray-scale images. Is it possible to use gray-scale images to train existing model (which are trained with color images)?
I'm concerned because they trained their model with color images.
Does the model just consider the grayscale image as color image? And does it still work? :)
p.s I'm generating XML and csv files to put data for training and testing.
