Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder

CNET Editors' review

Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder offers people a chance to seek out duplicate photos and clear some space on their hard drive. With extremely simple controls, this program excels in all the right places.

The program's interface is surprisingly simple considering the complex task it performs. Users can easily navigate through photo folders, select settings for the search, and begin finding duplicates with the simple click of a few buttons. The program also offers a Help file for people who may have questions about this basic setup. Users must know where their photos and possible duplicates are stored, as this program doesn't search the entire hard drive, but rather only selected photos. While this was slightly annoying, once this process begins, it quickly seeks out all the possible dupes, lists them, and allows users to view them side-by-side to decide whether or not to delete the shots. One important note, deleting pictures is disabled on the trial version of this program.

The Image Finder's features were very basic and geared toward making your experience with the program better. Users can tweak what qualities the program searches for with a few simple check boxes. This program is a great tool for clearing computer space. Anyone who is concerned about duplicate photos will have a simple time erasing duplicates thanks to this fantastic download.

    "Simply the best similar photo finder tool"

    March 18, 2014  |   By sarahwilliams25

    Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 4.7.0.1

    Pros

    Thank you dog_or_man you made my day!
    This tool is amazing indeed - the only one that really works.
    Well worth that low price having in mind it support 300+ RAW formats and 100+ popular image formats including PSD.

    Cons

    Nothing to mention here.

    Summary

    Thanks to dog_or_man I purchased a license and I am more than satisfied with this tool.
    I tried also free ones, but they were a total waste of time. There are also more expensive commercial ones that are even worse than the free ones that I tired.
    This tools simply WORKS and it works really GREAT.

    "The only one that works."

    January 14, 2014  |   By dog_or_man

    Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 4.7.0.1

    Pros

    Easy to use interface; flexible parameters; actually works.

    Cons

    You have to pay for it, but it's only $25.

    Summary

    I've tried several free- and donationware programs for locating duplicate image files, and the best I could say of any of them is that some of them didn't install malware and browser hijacks on my machine. (Some of them did, but none of them found duplicate images under even rudimentary testing conditions.) This program really, really, really works -- I'm deliriously happy with it. The free demo is pretty useless, and you have to uninstall it to get the paid one to work, so I recommend you go straight to the paid version, which is only twenty-five bucks.

    You can adjust whether or not to search for duplicates of different compression rates, different aspect ratios, even whether to consider a cropped copy a duplicate or not. Even better, you can adjust the "quality" of the match (by a meaningless percentage, but still), and on that basis you can create repositories of similar but *not* identical pictures, since after you've completed your search you can move the selected files instead of deleting them.

    Highly, highly, *highly* recommended.

    "The only tool that really compares photo content"

    July 5, 2013  |   By jackdorsey

    Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 4.7.0.1

    Pros

    This tool is amazing - this is not just a stupid duplicate finder - it compares the actual photos and can find similar images and group them together.

    Cons

    None. Very stable and feature-rich tool.

    Summary

    Amazing tool. There is a free demo so give it a try - I have not seen anything like this,
