    How to Find and Remove Duplicate Images or Pictures from your PC


    Most of us save Images, Pictures, Wallpapers in our PC from the Internet, CD’s, Friend’s PC or photos taken from our Digital Camera. Most of us love to have a collection of beautiful images, pictures in any format like jpeg, bmp, gif or any other extension. After some days, months and years, your hard drive will have hundreds and thousands of images. And definitely there might be duplicate ones lying around on your drives eating up your hard disk space.

    I want to share a tool that i am using from last 4-5 years. With this tool, you can remove the duplicate pictures.

    The tool is DupDetector, its a free ware. Click DupDetector to download it.

    How to Find and Remove Duplicate Images / Pictures

    1. First select the method for comparing images/pictures from the method tab.
    2. DupDetector - the method for comparing images from the method tab

    3. Click on Get data tab and click on Open… button and select the folder that contains all the images that you want to compare and then click Build.. button. The building of data file takes some time, so have a cup of tea or coffee and come back.

      Find and delete similar and duplicate images and pictures

      Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder will find all similar and duplicate images in a folder and its sub folders. It uses advanced algorithms in order to find similar images in a way that a human does. Due to that fact it can find similar images even if they are in different image formats and sizes.
