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.

    "Great for organizing photos"

    July 20, 2014   |   By tripio2f

    Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.4.0.1

    Pros

    Nice features in this tool. Can help with many tasks:
    Searching for a sample image in your photo library
    Merging photos from multiple locations
    Cleaning and organizing photo library

    Cons

    Maybe it would be better to display all thumbnails at the bottom, not just 2, but I guess if there are too many photos in a group it would not be convenient.

    Summary

    Great value for its money. Definitely a good choice

    "Tried many duplicate photo finders"

    July 16, 2014   |   By SimonJohnson36

    Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.4.0.1

    Pros

    I tried many duplicate photo finder tools and I can state that this one really works. Actually you can not even compare them - this one is way better than anything else I've tested.

    Cons

    I do not have much remarks. Zoom to fit in the preview panel would be nice.

    Summary

    I like it!

    "Great tool with solid support"

    July 11, 2014   |   By amanda881

    Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.4.0.1

    Pros

    I like the tool a lot. Works as advertised and helps in organizing images. You can download the free demo and see for yourself.
    I had an issue that auto-check was not selecting any images and contacted the support. I must admit that I received a response withing 5 minutes which is impressive. It turned out that it was my mistake as I had excluded all folders from auto-check so there was nothing to check :)
    Support was baffled at first, but after I sent them a screenshot they sent me the solution immediately :)

    Cons

    I do not recall

    Summary

    These guys are real professional - you rarely receive such prompt responses from support nowadays.

    "This one is incredible too"

    July 09, 2014   |   By daria29

    Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.4.0.1

    Pros

    I use the Audio Dedupe tool by this company and I am very happy with it. I noticed this one and it is great too - finding similar photos is not a task that any duplicate finder can do.
    I love how it manages to find similar portraits of a person shot from different angles.
    AMAZING!

    Cons

    I have no remarks about the duplicate finders from this company - they are all great.

    Summary

    Very reliable and innovative tool - I have recommended it to all my friends and they love it too. :)

    "This app kicks ass"

    July 06, 2014   |   By twagazzz

    Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 4.7.0.1

    Pros

    Very cool features
    Amazing similarity search engine
    Great user interface

    Cons

    The price for Pro version is a bit steep, but it is well worth the extra bucks for the extra 300 RAW image formats that it supports.

    Summary

    This is a bad ass application and can do wonders if you need to organize photos.

    "WOW 300+ Image formats including RAW"

    July 06, 2014   |   By tlnhe79

    Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 4.7.0.1

    Pros

    The most complete tool I have tested so far.
    Immense quantity of supported file formats including RAW for all popular cameras. I have both NEF and CRW files - all scanned perfectly.
    Ability to compare different files - for example NEF and CRW.
    This is a "must have" for a photography addict like me!

    Cons

    Initial scan can take some time on a slower storage. I read in the FAQ section of this tool that it is extremely optimized and that the slowest thing in the scan process is reading the files from the storage. Scanning files on SSD drive is very fast indeed compared to my USB drive.
    That is not such a big issue though as the tool does some sort of indexing on initial scan and next scans are tens of times quicker.

    "Much better than standard duplicate finders"

    July 05, 2014   |   By taztx22

    Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 4.7.0.1

    Pros

    This is not just a standard duplicate file finder - it can find similar photos and that is something other tools can not do.
    I though I was using a good duplicate finder (just like you think) but after I tried this one - oh boy it is amazing.
    No more zillion versions of the same photo.

    Cons

    I have nothing to file in this section.

    Summary

    I do recommend you to try this one. It saved me 100+ gigabytes of disk space. I travel a lot an take lots of photos.

    "Excellent tools - wish I had found this earlier"

    July 05, 2014   |   By lindsey999

    Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.4.0.1

    Pros

    I had accumulated zillions of photos over the years from cameras, phones, scanned from hard copies and saved in multiple file formats scattered in many folders. You can understand that this was a nightmare to organize. This tool is so cool that I have no words to describe it:
    Works fast
    Very accurate results
    Can compare folders
    Internal preview for hundreds of image formats

    Cons

    I really have nothing to complain about this tool - all I can say is that it saved me months of work.

    Summary

    If you need to organize your images this is the tool that can really do it for you. Tried many commercial and free tools, but nothing as good as this one. There is a free demo so give it a try.

    "The tools from this company are quite good"

    June 10, 2014   |   By tlazi

    Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.4.0.1

    Pros

    I really like this one as it can find similar images - something that a standard duplicate file finder can not do.
    I tried their Free duplicate finder and it is quite good too:
    http://download.cnet.com/Fast-Duplicate-File-Finder/3000-2248_4-75183786.html

    Cons

    Initial scan can take some time on large image collections.

    "Did not had high expectations for this one"

    June 09, 2014   |   By ZenGarden88

    Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.4.0.1

    Pros

    Turned out that I was wrong. This tool can identify similar photos - a photo of the same person from slightly different angles for example.
    Have not seen any other tool that can do this.

    Cons

    Initial scan can take some time if you have 40 000 images like me which are mostly RAW, but consequential scans are really fast as it uses some kind of cache system.
