What is a Duplicate Photo Finder?

A Duplicate Photo Finder is a specialized software that uses advanced algorithms to search your computer for the same photos and visually-similar photos. It is a useful tool if you have many duplicate photos that take up a lot of storage and make it difficult to find the photos you need.

Difference Between Same Photos & Similar Photos

There are two types of duplicate photos, viz. same photos, and similar photos.

The Same Photos are 100% identical photos. They have the same file size, subject, background objects, resolution, composition, etc. Their similarity threshold is 100%. In contrast, Similar Photos are visually-similar photos or photos with minor edits. These photos may have the same subject, but they may vary in terms of file size, image resolution, bit depth, composition, color information, other objects, etc. Their similarity threshold is always below 100%.

What is Similarity Threshold?

Similarity Threshold is the level of similarity between the image pixels. It determines how closely the pixels of two images must match to classify them as duplicates. You can adjust the similarity threshold by moving the Similarity Threshold slider to the right or left.

A Similarity Threshold of 100% indicates that the photos are the same with no difference. In contrast, a lower Similarity Threshold indicates variations in the photos. The lower the similarity threshold, the greater the disparity.

Where Do I Get Duplicate Photos From?

It's easy to accumulate duplicate photos. Some of the likelihood possibilities of how you acquired them are given below:

  • Photo transfers from your digital camera or smartphone to your PC/ laptop
  • Repeated downloading of the same photos on multiple occasions
  • Minor editing (for example, rotating or flipping) of photos and saving them as separate copies
  • Photo conversion from one format to another (for example, .bmp to .jpeg)
  • When you compress your files, your file compression program creates a separate archive with those photos, leading to duplication.
