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.
Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder's main goal is to help you to find fast all similar and duplicate images in a folder and its sub folders. Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder uses advanced algorithms to find similar images in a way that a human does. Due to that fact it can find similar images even if they are in different image formats, different bit depth and image sizes. You can specify a percent of image similarity that will be used during the scan. Using the similarity percentage level you can broaden your results or you can specify exact match varying only in image format and/or size. After the scan process is finished the program shows all images that have duplicates and can automatically mark the smaller resolution and/or smaller file size images for deletion. With a couple of mouse clicks you can get rid off all duplicate images and save gigabytes of valuable disk space. Unlike standard duplicate file finders this advanced duplicate photo finder tool will "Look" at your images in order to find similarities like a real person would do.
