    "Nice package - pity about the malware"

    February 27, 2013  |   By mcleaver

    Version: Awesome Duplicate Photo Finder 1.1

    Pros

    It is very good at finding duplicate and near duplicate photos.

    Cons

    It can take a long time. But far worse is that is surreptitiously changes your search page/home page in e.g. Chrome to the SearchYa page. Big-time fail!

    Summary

    Beware of malware

    "Not so useful"

    January 18, 2013  |   By yanglifu90

    Version: Awesome Duplicate Photo Finder 1.1

    Pros

    It did find some photos that are duplicated.

    Cons

    It displays photos with the same content(pixel to pixel) but different file sizes as 100% similar, and finds completely different photos with 1% similarity, so basically the algorithm used in the software is flawed. And you have to manipulate photos one by one instead of selecting all 100% similar photos and delete their duplicates, for large collection with duplicated photos this would be laborious. There exists another application that does a better job but I cannot remember its name.

    Summary



    Updated on Jan 19, 2013

    So I find the program I aforementioned, it is called VisiPics.

    "AWESOME is the correct name for this program"

    January 1, 2013  |   By fliersrr

    Version: Awesome Duplicate Photo Finder 1.1

    Pros

    Uses image comparison not file name to find duplicates!
    Large Preview Window!

    Cons

    None but read summary.

    Summary

    I had a big mess on my hands with over 11,000 photo duplications. I used two programs to fix my mess. First I download from this Download.com web site the free program called Duplicate File Finder. Has the three squares for an icon. This program found the majority of my duplications. It compares the file names. Now that that was done I wanted to rid my collection of photos of duplicates. This program called Awesome Duplicate Photo uses IMAGE comparison NOT file names to weed out duplicates. It is amazing! I had so many actual duplicates photos with different file names. Not sure how this happened, but since I have had many different computers over the years and have stored many photos on CDs, DVDs, etc., anything was possible. So download both programs!

    "Scans perfectly for duplicates but no batch delete."

    November 2, 2012  |   By verboeh

    Version: Awesome Duplicate Photo Finder 1.1

    Pros

    It can scan within directories and find multiple pictures (and fast), with a rating scale of 100 percent for straight duplicate to very similar photo.

    You can delete browse or move individual photos, it is good after a clean swipe of your images so the new images wont be a hassle to find duplicates.


    I am starting this application and in ~7 minutes it found ~1900 duplicate images out of 5000 that I had from my camera archives in mixed and matched folders its quite impressive.

    Cons

    No Batch delete

    Summary

    There isn't that much options on it, it is a straight forward scan, compare, etc.. (delete 1 at a time)

    There is no option to Batch delete or select multiple photos.
    That is a BIG, BIG! problem when facing a fresh or a scan after sometime as most people do & will use this program for that purpose. If you scan your picture library often then this will not be a hassle but this program is for us the forgetful people that don't erase our sd cards from our phones/cameras/etc... as often as we should so end up with duplicates.

    I am starting this and in ~7 minutes it found ~1900 duplicate images out of 5000 that I had from my camera archives in mixed and matched folders its quite impressive, but the lack of batch delete or even basic Select+arrow or mouse or Ctrl+click does nothing not even delete button so you have to manually click the delete icon for the respective picture over and over and if your doing around ~1900 duplicates it can and will get tiresome.

    Even the settings are to basic but yet don't accomplish what this great program could have achieved if it had a simple batch delete or automatically delete the duplicates.

    Hopefully this program does get updated hell even a paid version would not seem out of this world if it had the option to batch delete.
