Locating and removing duplicates can easily become a time-consuming nightmare, and may eventually even take away the fun of taking pictures. Difficult lighting and exposure problems, camera shake and digital noise can pollute your images. If you encounter difficult shooting conditions, you are probably taking a few duplicates with somewhat different settings. Selecting the best shot out of a few duplicates is relatively easy, but what if you have hundreds of duplicate shots?
Image Comparer helps you out of this predicament by analyzing your digital images and automatically selects the best shot out of many duplicates, allowing you to move or delete them in a couple of mouse clicks. Image Comparer is slightly different from similar programs in that it does not just look for exact duplicates. Instead, it analyzes and recognizes an image's content, and groups pictures that look alike. You can specify the level of similarity that is sufficient to consider pictures to be duplicates. View them in pairs or see the top ten similar images and keep the best one!
This is an extremely useful program for professional or amateur photographers that take duplicate photos with very similar settings. However, for the average user, it's fairly unnecessary because it's designed for those that have hundreds, not just a few, duplicate images.
