Find Duplicate Images Fast with Image Comparer

Image Comparer by Bolide Software

Bolide Software’s Image Comparer is a duplicate image finder that lets users find similar or duplicate images automatically and delete redundant files. You don’t have to browse through computer folders manually to find duplicates and similar photos.

The software maker says Image Comparer puts this process on autopilot. Using a content-based image retrieval technology (CBIR) for image comparison, the program is able to find dupes and similar pictures, regardless of their file name, format, image size, bit depth and orientation of the object.

Running Image Comparer displays an easy to follow wizard that asks where the user wants to search – within one photo folder or compare images in two different folders. The next step is to choose the folder(s) to scan, select whether to search for duplicates or similar images and set the folder for the output results. That’s it. Clicking the Process button starts the search.

If you want it, Image Comparer is now available for download, $35 a pop.
