Publisher's description of VisiPics
VisiPics does more than look for identical files. It applies five image comparison filters in order to measure how close pairs of images on the hard drive are. It will detect two different resolution files of the same picture as a duplicate, or the same picture saved in different formats, or duplicates where only minor cosmetic changes have taken place. All detected duplicates are shown side by side with pertinent information like file name, type and size displayed. Uses Hyperthreading or Multi-processors systems. Highly efficient results with adjustable similarity levels. Easy to use interface, preview your duplicates easily and pick the ones to delete with a simple click. Starts to display the results while scanning, you don't have to wait to delete your duplicates.Duplicate photos take up an incredible amount of unnecessary space on hard drives. However, many people leave them for fear of erasing an original. VisiPics is an innovative way to find these duplicates and safely know you are erasing the space-wasters.
This free program has a tangled interface that will take some experimenting to get used to. But once understood, it works fairly smoothly. Along the top are drop-down menus for files, actions, tools, and options, and all look fairly standard. Below, is a file tree and the meat of the program. Here, you will find an empty box with arrows and plus/minus signs along the sides, and buttons for applying picture filters. Searching for duplicates involves selecting a file from the tree and hitting the Play button. It successfully found duplicate files on our computer. Users can adjust how strict the program searches, as well as by size and file type. Any found duplicates appear side-by-side and can be easily deleted.
While we were initially turned off by the complexity of getting VisiPics moving, we were impressed enough with the results to say that this is a worthy download for anyone trying to create some space on their computer.
