Duplicate Image Detector2.1.0.34

20 July 2010

Detects identical or near identical images.

Overview

Duplicate Image Detector will hunt through your files and directories, detecting images which are identical or very close to identical. No longer will your hard drive be full of the same image copied over and over. Avoid slowing down your website by making users load the same file multiple times.

Duplicate Image Detector will even detect images which are saved in different formats but have the same source. If you have a tiff file which has then been saved using different jpeg compression settings Duplicate Image Detector will find all of those images even images that have been scaled.

Once you have found the duplicate images you can compare the matches and inspect the images.

Why is this program dead? The company seems to have disappeared which is a shame because, aside from the terrible un-Mac-like user interface, it's the only program I can find for OS X that has the ability to find images that are similar between file types and file dimensions. I could have a small 300x500 image and the same image at 768x1024 and it would detect it. No other program I've found so far does this at all. But now the developer seems to have disappeared. If they hired a UI designer, made it look a lot nicer and logical, and fixed some of the crashes, it'd be perfect. It's the only program that works like a Google Image Search for your local files. Every other program only seems to work if the two files are completely identical which is useless because any program designed to compare resource and data forks can do the same thing. This is the only one that does similar images. I guess I'll have to keep looking and hoping for a replacement unless the developer suddenly reappears even though it's been over 4 years since it was updated.

This app has a great concept, but there is a few things lacking. Its a hog of the system, its interface designer should be immediately fired and the icons are horendous.

Bad implementation of a great idea. Would be a easy 4 star review if it were not for the constant crashes. Not worth the money in it's current state.

Works very well, especially in v. 1.1.1, which adds many interface enhancements as well as fixing a couple of crash problems. I don't know why anyone would have problems understanding how to use the application; it seemed quite simple to me, but some usage enhancements would be nice. Fortunately, the developer listens to suggestions--about half of the ones I've made have already been added (and I've gone a little overboard with suggestions). Perhaps the main reason why duplicates might not be found is that, AFAIK, the application only matches duplicates of equal size. It'll find a single image multiply saved in in JPG, TIFF, and other formats, but won't match them if one is 640x480 and another is 1024x768. So far, that is the single largest drawback to an otherwise very good program (and one that is getting better). I have a LARGE collection of photos that is rather disorganized, including sets that I cannot now identify, but might be duplicates of ones that were previously labeled and archived. However, since we're talking 89 *thousand* photos... well, just try remembering which ones! I've been able to cull out thousands of duplicates. To explain my rating: For "Features" to go to 5, it needs a) the ability to match images of different sizes, and b) the ability to rescan a particular result, adding new images. Now, you can add a new, separate directory, but can't redo already scanned directories that had new content added (matching only the new images against the existing database). If the little interface suggestions I've made are added--e.g., when one of a pair of duplicates is deleted, for the next pair to automatically be selected even if in different folders--"Ease of Use" goes to 5. Right now, it's helped do things I couldn't practically do before.

Would be a useful app if it actually worked. I deliberately picked a folder with duplicate images and none were detected. I had to lower the threshold to like 70%, and it then found several "duplicates", but not the real duplicate images. Not sure why it failed, but it did.

Tried it. A very non-intuitive interface. I couldn't really figure out how to compare the 2 dupes to figure which to delete.

This is exactly what I have been looking for but it has one hiccup. Upon comparing a 11,000+ image folder(about 8 hours scan time on a G3 333), it gets the dreaded SBBOD(Spinning beachball of death) when trying to modify the duplicate images, either trashing them or revealing in the Finder. This is probably happening because of my slow mac. Otherwise a great app.

Donloaded it. If this works as advertised, I'll buy it. So far, nothing on the Mac has been able to do this correctly. ViewIt and GraphicConverter have similarly named features, but don't really work unless the image is identical. I've thrown a folder full of extremely similar images (e.g. multiple portraits of the same person with slighly varying facial expression, and even a couple of duplicates with various crops and image sizes) and have gotten no hits in the other apps. On the PC, there is Duplicate Image Finder, which works pretty good. But I'm on a mac. I'll try this and report back.
