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.

"BIG Thank you for providing this tool."

April 05, 2015  |  By xyeaxl

 |  Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.6.0.1

Pros

This tool saved me months of work. I tried several others and was just about to give up as none of them worked and a friend of mine recommended this one. Believe me it has nothing to do with other similar tool - it is WAY ahead. Detection system is much more precise, the tool is much faster, the supported formats are much more...you name it...it is all there.
There is a free demo so you can see for yourself.

Cons

This field should not be mandatory - the tools is flawless for me.

Summary

If you have collected zillions of photos like me then this one will definitely do the job for you.

"Accurate and fast tool"

January 14, 2015  |  By yopokal

 |  Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.6.0.1

Pros

Many file formats, support for RAW, internal preview, image search, great design.

Cons

Works flawlessly - no issues so far.

Summary

This is great tool. As far as I read the comment from "michael.vanderveldt" it is absolute nonsense and does not provide any useful information. The answer to your nonsense is in your comment - this is a demo - it is designed to showcase the features of the tool - not to do a real job. If you want free stuff that do not work then install Linux, otherwise this tool is worth every penny I paid.

"Absolute Garbage"

January 08, 2015  |  By michael.vanderveldt

 |  Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.6.0.1

Pros

Finds duplicate photos

Cons

Cannot delete or move duplicate photos

Cannot do literally anything with this software

Summary

The demo version is absolutely worthless. It only finds duplicate files, but does not tell you the name of the file nor does it allow you to delete or move them. I made an account on downloads.com JUST to give this product a bad review. It was not worth the time I spent on it. It was not worth the bandwidth I used to download it. I would have rather downloaded a trojan virus because It would provide more functionality than this terrible program. Please don't even give the developers a +1 to number of downloads. I hope they never work another project.

"Amazing tool - "must have" for media management"

December 04, 2014  |  By wilmajakes21

 |  Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.6.0.1

Pros

Being able to find duplicates that may be saved in 400 different image formats is just amazing. No other tool is even close to such features.
Very accurate results.
Fast performance.

Cons

Nothing to remark here - great piece of software.

"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.

"I am not a reviewer type but I will add my 50c"

August 05, 2014  |  By tvcxx

 |  Version: Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.5.0.1

Pros

This product is really great and works perfectly.
300+ image formats for such a low price is a steal.

Cons

Some extra flexibility in the folders list would be fine. It is a pain to exclude from auto-check if you have say 100 folders added - but I guess not many people need this.

Summary

Great product overall. There is a free demo so give it a try.

"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!
