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.
