AntiDupl.NET v 1.6

#1 Post by JohnW » Wed Nov 10, 2010 9:10 am

AntiDupl.NET program will help you find duplicate images.

It can find and display duplicate images in the main graphic formats: JPEG, GIF, TIFF, BMP, PNG, EMF, WMF, EXIF, and ICON.
The comparison is based on the contents of the files, so the program can find not only almost identical, but similar images.
In addition, the program can find images with some types of defects.

I used it on a folder containing about 4000 images. It found many duplicates with different names and file sizes. All in under 2 minutes. It was not infallible but I was very impressed.

It does require .NET Framework and this still seems to upset quite a few PFC members.
(Doesn't bother me!)

But it works really well

Where did you see that?
Note: If you have not installed on your computer Windows Vista (or later), then for this series required Microsoft.NET Framework 2.0 (22 Mb) or a later version. (http://antidupl.narod.ru/english/download.html)

Oh okay -- now that I look at it more carefully, I'm not sure what the word "this" in that message is referring to. To me that seems to refer to the programs below it (the 2.x series). The author really needs to be more clear.

AntiDupl is my preferred "similar images" search engine, holding its own even against some commercial products.

AD proves amazingly fast at processing additional pictures, once the initial scanning of an entire image collection is completed, and the results indexed into its own database.
(for instance, comparing about 50 new pictures against an indexed DB of 30,000 entries takes under 60 sec)

Another tool in the same category, imgSearch, offers one really nifty feature for displaying its search results:

Unlike AD which displays pairs of similar pictures in succession, imgSearch goes to the trouble of displaying multiple similar images side by side as a group,
while preserving the pictures relative aspect ratio, which is very convenient when vetting pictures to keep or to delete from a group.

On the down side, imgSearch is MUCH slower than AD for scanning large collection of files (say > 2000),
and, unfortunately, version 3.0.8 has not been updated since March 2007.

@Midas

After briefly browsing AllDup documentation, it seems their duplicates search engine is lacking one crucial function,
namely a mechanism to detect duplicates by "contents similarity", via some adjustable threshold parameter,
which is why I view AntiDupl a better choice (for my current usage, anyway).

Actually, the most recent AntiDupl release now offers two distinct "similarity search" algorithms, with various speed of processing:

• Standard "mean-square difference" faster algorithm, calculates a mean square deviation of brightness for each couple of images
• Newer "SSIM" (Structural SIMilarity index) slower algorithm, better at detecting strongly changed pictures

see "Images Comparison Algorithms" and "Threshold Parameters" options detailed explanation here:
http://antidupl.sourceforge.net/data/he ... tions.html

Thanks for the pix, anyway !

• Added the option "Compare images inside one directory".

• Menu items "Refresh database of image" exchanged on "Delete irrelevant records from a database of image". Whether now it checks there are files for which sketches are stored in a database on a former place. If isn't present, then irrelevant record are deleted. Allows to reduce the database size after operations of deleting or relocation.

• The column of display of the size of group is added (number of pictures in group).

• Added to a context menu of images items of adding of its or its directory in the list of the ignored paths.
