Search for Duplicate Images Faster Than Ever
Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 18.104.22.168 is now Windows 8 certified. The application utilizes a new cache system that provides immense speed improvement in the pre-processing stage. The improvement can be up to 1000 (no it is not a typo – thousand times) faster depending on the count of images. Using the new cache system VSDIF can now pre-process 10,000 images in a second. It is strongly recommended to use the new cache system as consequential scans of an image library will be extremely fast.
The best thing regarding the new cache is the fact that it also detects modified files. This means that a file which was cached in a previous scan and has been modified will be identified and re-processed. This ensures that the duplicate image finder will use the latest version of every file even when using the cache system. The new cache system is available also for the “Image Search” feature and will work equally fast. Old cache files were designed for slow storage and computers and are no longer supported.
In addition to the options that were available for excluding files, the improvements in the filtering options now allow to include files based on various criteria. Here are the filtering options:
There is a new option “Check All Except First in Group” in the Auto-check feature. An updated browse for folder dialog can be used to navigate to a folder that is pasted from the clipboard. There is a huge speed improvement when loading large project files. The entire change log can be found here.
