Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder-Search For Images By Content
In our digital era shooting and editing digital photos is part of our daily life. Unfortunately we rarely keep a well organized database. We copy images to temporary locations in different formats that we needed at certain points of our work and forget to delete them. Searching for a photograph by its content was an impossible task for a computer so soon we are going out of storage. In such situations what comes extremely handy is a product developed by MindGems Inc.
I am going to introduce you here – Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder. Though a bit long, the name of the product describes it perfectly well. The product will find similar images regardless of the file name, format, image size and bit depth. Image processing is a heavy task and the performance achieved by this application is incredible. It manages to scan thousands of images in few minutes. I got also some information from the company about a new feature that will be available in the upcoming version. A photo search option. It will let you search for images by a sample. You will no longer have to search for your wedding photos. Do you remember that photo you mailed to John? Just load it in Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder and it will find the rest of the images for you. A very nice feature that will let you find the rest of the images from the set by loading a single sample.
Many professionals and also advanced photographers take images in RAW format. The quality of the RAW images is much better compared to JPEG, but the drawback is the size and the fact that very small amount of products supports it. The good news here is that Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder will provide also a RAW support soon for all the popular camera brands available on the market.
I must admit also the vast variety of image formats that it supports. Here is a complete list:
- JPEG Bitmap (*.jpg;*.jpeg;*.jpe)
- Compuserve Bitmap (*.gif)
- Portable Network Graphics (*.png)
- TIFF Bitmap (*.tif;*.tiff;*.fax;*.g3n;*.g3f)
- JPEG2000 Files (*.jp2)
- JPEG2000 Code Stream (*.j2k;*.jpc;*.j2c)
- Targa (*.tga;*.targa;*.vda;*.icb;*.vst;*.pix)
- Paintbrush (*.pcx)
- Windows Bitmap (*.bmp;*.dib;*.rle)
- Windows Metafile (*.wmf)
- Enhanced Windows Metafile (*.emf)
- Windows Icon (*.ico)
- Windows Cursor (*.cur)
