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.


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.


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.

"Fast search engine, supports JP2K"

November 06, 2015  |  By lgcharlot

 |  Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder


Fast search engine, stable and reliable even on really huge photo archives, not a steep learning curve. Developer has been around for at least a decade, current version is v6, which indicates that this software is pretty mature and less likely to still be "buggy". Most important "Pro" is that this is one of very few Duplicate Image Finder programs that supports the less-popular image formats like JPEG2000. Can be configured to either Delete duplicates to the Recycle bin, or Move them to a different folder, which gives you a chance to change your mind before permanently deleting anything.


Not the cleanest, easiest to interpret user interface, but usable.


After an extensive search, I have failed to find any completely "free" Windows software for locating duplicate images by content similarity, that supports JPEG2000 and the other obscure, less popular file formats. This software supports the largest set of image file formats that I have found, bar none, and while I like freeware, I have nearly 10,000 JPEG2000 images in my 70,000 image collection, so shelling out the $25 for this software is probably my only viable option. NOTE: If you do in fact have a substantial inventory of JPEG2000 images, be prepared for the search to take a LONG time (hours, or even days if you have a terabyte of more of images on your hard drive). You are probably already aware of how slow JP2 files are for both reading and writing, but the good news is that the latest version of this software seems to have a pretty good JP2 algorithm; loading JP2's during the pre-processing stage of a duplicate search seems to be substantially faster than some of my other graphics software like IrfanView or PhotoShop. Anyway, if you do use JP2 for archival storage of digital photos, you have few software choices for a Duplicate Finder tool; at $25, this software isn't terribly expensive and it does work pretty good.

"Bunch of fake reviews!!!"

September 29, 2015  |  By ReviewerTracker

 |  Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder


I don't know.


So I go through and look at a bunch of the reviews and check what other reviews the users have done. Interestingly many, if not all, have 4-5 reviews each. All done on the same day/user. All reviewing MindGems Software. All giving 5 stars. If that doesn't smell like the MindGems staff writing fake reviews I don't know what does.
