Editors' Review

+

Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder helps you root out duplicate images so you can remove them and subsequently save space on your hard drive. Rather than relying on file names or format to identify copies, this program compares images visually, and that leads to a more accurate analysis of what files may be duplicates.

Pros

Cross-format analysis: No matter what format your images are stored in, and particularly if they're in different formats in different places, this app can scan and compare them. It supports more than 400 file formats, including many from RAW camera files. So no matter why you wound up with duplicates, you'll be able to find and delete them.

Scan options: Each time you run a scan, you can choose to include images with smaller file sizes if the dimensions are equal, images with smaller dimensions, and images with smaller file sizes regardless of the dimensions, depending on what you're looking for and what kinds of images you'd like to remove. You can also search for certain file sizes and file extensions if you know more specifically what you're looking for.

Cons

Only manual selections: You can't use this app to automatically scan your whole computer. Instead, you have to enter specific folders or locations to scan, which may take some time if you're not sure where duplicate image files might be located.

Bottom Line

Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder is an innovative program that can help you save space on your hard drive by eliminating unwanted duplicate photos. The visual approach it takes means that it can find duplicates other programs can't, as they may only look for duplicate file names. You can try this app for free, but you can't delete with the trial version, and only the first ten file names are displayed in the search results. Purchasing a full license costs $24.95.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.5.0.1.

"Very accurate results compared to other tools"

November 17, 2014  |  By vdupqf

 |  Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.6.0.1

Pros

This one does not rely on colors like other tools and does not list that much false positives - it performs a real image analysis indeed.
I was impressed by the results provided having tested a bunch of similar tools.

Cons

Nothing to complain about - I even think that this tool is rather cheap for the 300+ image formats that it supports.

Summary

Highly recommended.

"This tool is one on my favorites"

November 07, 2014  |  By TonyMcarter

 |  Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.6.0.1

Pros

Since I ordered this one I have no problems with my photo library - the mess is OVER!
Keeps getting better in every version.

Cons

I do not have any complaints about this tool!

Summary

If you want to find similar and duplicate photos this one is for you. And yes nowadays these take a lot of space especially in RAW format.
So a single scan can save gigabytes of disk space.

"Professional grade tool"

November 07, 2014  |  By lindseyferr

 |  Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.6.0.1

Pros

Supports RAW and can find similar photos in ANY image format - something that a standard duplicate finder can not do.

Cons

Nothing to mention here.

Summary

If you also have 100 000 images to organize like me then you will understand that this is a real lifesaver.
