"Very nice and useful proggy"

April 05, 2007  |  By cabrón

 |  Version: VisiPics 1.1

Pros

First of all, I have to say that I haven't tried any other programs to compare this to except ACDsee, which I was using for other purposes and just happened to see and use the duplicate file finder module of that program. As far as I know, it will only find exact duplicates. As for the other programs similar to this, I read the reviews first, and since I dont' even bother with crippled software, I haven't tried them. I didn't try Dup Detector because I tried this one first and it worked great for me, so I didnt' bother trying out anything else after that.

So I can't say whether it works better than other competing products, but for me it did the job. It found dups of different sizes and resolutions and found pics that had been edited slightly. I only tried it on its default(Basic) slider setting and with that setting, it found images that were not exact dups but very similar, like succesive vidcap frames or photos that had a slight position change. Since I actually wanted to see those, I didn't try other slider settings.

As far as speed, freezing up, crashing, I didn't have any problems with it. Since I use the task manager to keep tabs on my computer's performance, I noticed that it would use more and more memory the more files it was comparing, but I would expect that. My biggest comparison run was around 65000 files and I think the program's ram usage for that run was 600-700 MB. Since I have 2 Gig ram, it didnt' cause any problems on my system. As far as speed, I clocked it at about 450 images/minute. I have an AMD Athlon 64X2 Dual 4200+ .

As far as bugs, there were instances where it started the comparison immediately after I selected a folder without waiting for me to press the start button. It's not a big deal, because if you want to add additional folders, you can just stop it and restart it after adding the folder. I only mention it because it wasn't consistent in that respect; sometimes starting immediately and sometimes waiting for me to click the start button.

Cons

Sorry, I didn't want to use this section, but when I tried to submit my review, I got an error message saying that the Pros section can only have 2048 characters. I don't feel like editing my review, so I'll put the rest here.

Overall, I was very impressed. I have tried and / or used many hundreds of shareware programs over the past 20 odd years. Although I have come close to donating a few times, I never have. Since this author didn't demand any particular fee, I decided I would donate $10. Amazingly, when I went to donate, the web site was in French and I couldn't understand it, so I couldn't follow thru. Also, there should be an option for US dollars, rather than just Euros.

"Nice program but not the best duplicate finder"

June 06, 2006  |  By solver66

 |  Version: VisiPics 1.1

Pros

I tested this program against Dup Detector, another freeware program, on an archive of 23000 pics. I liked the interface of Visipics better.

Cons

However, when it comes to finding duplicates, Visipics is simply inferior to Dup Detector, finding only approximately 60% of the duplicates Dup Detector would find. Especially the visual inspection of the file is inferior with Visipics. If the files are completely similar, Visipics will pick them out for you too. So if you are looking for real visual inspection of your images, take another choice, if you want to eliminate full duplicates, use this one.

"Very promising software, worthy of support"

March 20, 2006  |  By wally_walrus

 |  Version: VisiPics 1.1

Pros

Excellent at finding duplicates, provided the collection of compared images is not too large. The sliding scale for determining degree of likeness is a great innovation. The software finds similar images as well as exact duplicates. The interface is simple to use, and clearly laid out.

Cons

I find 20-30,000 images is an upper limit for comfortable comparison, on my PC. If I compare more, I need to rearrange my directories and do multiple compares, which does become tedious. Also, the software does sometimes freeze when multiple compare runs are done in one session. Hopefully comparisons will be speeded up in later versions?

"An excellent duplicate finder with almost no false positives"

January 09, 2006  |  By Snarfangel

 |  Version: VisiPics 1.1

Pros

Nearly all of the other programs I've tried found fewer dupes and had more false positives than VisiPics. They especially had problems with line art and cartoons --often completely and obviously different -- which this program detected easily. The only other one that sometimes seemed to find duplicates VisiPics missed is Dup Detector, and that also seemed slower and a lot looser in matching images that were not duplicates.

Cons

On *rare* occasions and with several thousand images, it would lock up. Looking in task manager, this only happened when the program took over a gig of memory during massive searches. Considering the infrequency this happened and the accuracy of the result, it is a pretty minor point.

"Simple and clean"

January 02, 2006  |  By TigerDarky

 |  Version: VisiPics 1.1

Pros

Fast and light program. Very usefull for people who, like me, have a lot a pictures on their computers. It's not really heavy and can be runned without slowing down the computer too much

Cons

It's not the best program i ever saw. The idea was simple, finding the pictures you've got more than once on your computer. But anyway, it does it really well.
