Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 6.2.0.1 Provides Flexibility In The Folders List And Can Automatically Adjust The Orientation Of The Preview Images

The duplicate photo finder tool is already flexible with plenty of filtering options and duplicate search algorithms, but this new release adds some extra flexibility by providing an easy way of altering the “Exclude from auto-check”, “Disable self-scan” and “Remove from list” by providing a context menu which operates on all the currently selected items.

 

The new option “Automatically adjust preview images orientation” is located in the settings and tells the application to use the EXIF image information to properly preview an image by automatically rotating the image. Such option will not work on images generated by old camera models that do not have sensor for camera orientation or on images that have their EXIF meta-data removed. Of course such images can be manually rotated using an external tool in order to face the desired direction.

 

A user interface fix addresses a rare issue that is present when using “Large fonts” and low resolution and causes the folders panel to disappear. A fix for the duplicates information above the duplicates list is also available. The information was not properly updated after using the “Image Search” feature.

This new version includes also the new features of the internal 5.3.0.1 release.

Improved Multi-threaded Performance

While VSDIF is extremely optimized in terms of CPU usage this new release provides some extra improvements and optimizations related to the multi-threaded performance. This speed optimization is not as big as those in recent updates, but it can make a difference on large collections.

Compare Folders – Compare Photo Libraries

This new feature provides a dialog box where a folder can be compared against one or more folder. This is a handy option when synchronizing multiple photo libraries. This feature is available only in the PRO and Corporate versions.

Improved Rotated/Flipped Image Comparison Performance

There is a huge performance improvement in this release when comparing rotated or flipped images. This version can be thousands of times faster in such cases.

Better Duplicate Photo Sorting

Sorting the images is now applied to the entire gird rather than sorting the items inside a group. The duplicate photo results can now be sorted by any property preserving the group integrity at the same time. This means that the list can be sorted by file size in order to remove the largest images or by file date in order to remove the oldest images first.

Additional Duplicate Photo Finder Improvements

The default cache name issue while using different precision levels is now fixed. This release provides extra backward compatibility and will load old projects without any issues. A small glitch in the cursor state when the application is paused is also fixed.

Find Similar and Duplicate PSD- Photoshop Document Files (Adobe Photoshop) – Duplicate Photo Finder

Find Similar and Duplicate PSD Files

How to find similar or duplicate photo files – PSD- Photoshop Document Files (Adobe Photoshop)

Photoshop files can grow quite large and saving multiple versions of the same document can lead to huge waste of disk space. Having in mind that even simpler files can take up to 100 MB, a quantity of even 50 unused files will waste 5 GB of disk space. Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder provides support for over 100 popular image formats and also 300 RAW camera formats. This of course includes the popular *.psd file format.

While a standard duplicate finder can find exact duplicates, it will not help you in such situation where the images are slightly modified or converted to multiple formats. The Duplicate Photo Finder performs a real image analysis and can identify duplicate and similar photos even if they are edited and stored in various file formats. It is the only similarity tool that supports the complex PSD file format. There is a FREE demo of this low-cost tool available for download at the above link.

About Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is a graphics editing program developed and published by Adobe Systems.

Adobe’s 2003 “Creative Suite” rebranding led to Adobe Photoshop 8’s renaming to Adobe Photoshop CS. Thus, Adobe Photoshop CS6 is the 13th major release of Adobe Photoshop. The CS rebranding also resulted in Adobe offering numerous software packages containing multiple Adobe programs for a reduced price. Adobe Photoshop is released in two editions: Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Photoshop Extended, with the Extended having extra 3D image creation, motion graphics editing, and advanced image analysis features.[7] Adobe Photoshop Extended is included in all of Adobe’s Creative Suite offerings except Design Standard, which includes the Adobe Photoshop edition. However, in 2013, Adobe announced a new brand – Creative Cloud. And the Photoshop version included in this suite is named Photoshop CC. The CC version( Originally 14.0, and will be continuously maintained and upgraded) has 3D content as Photoshop Extended, which means the standard version is canceled.

Alongside Photoshop and Photoshop Extended, Adobe also publishes Photoshop Elements and Photoshop Lightroom, collectively called “The Adobe Photoshop Family”. In 2008, Adobe released Adobe Photoshop Express, a free web-based image editing tool to edit photos directly on blogs and social networking sites. In 2011, a version was released for the Android operating system and the iOS operating system, followed by a release of a version for Windows 8 in 2013.[8][9][10]

Adobe distributes Photoshop in Windows and Macintosh versions.

PSD File format

Photoshop files have default file extension as .PSD, which stands for “Photoshop Document.” A PSD file stores an image with support for most imaging options available in Photoshop. These include layers with masks, transparency, text, alpha channels and spot colors, clipping paths, and duotone settings. This is in contrast to many other file formats (e.g. .JPG or .GIF) that restrict content to provide streamlined, predictable functionality. A PSD file has a maximum height and width of 30,000 pixels, and a length limit of 3 Gigabytes.
Photoshop files sometimes have the file extension .PSB, which stands for “Photoshop Big” (also known as “large document format”). A PSB file extends the PSD file format, increasing the maximum height and width to 300,000 pixels and the length limit to around 4 Exabytes. The dimension limit was apparently chosen arbitrarily by Adobe, not based on computer arithmetic constraints (it is not close to a power of two, as is 30,000) but for ease of software testing. PSD and PSB formats are documented.[15]
Because of Photoshop’s popularity, PSD files are widely used and supported to some extent by most competing software. The .PSD file format can be exported to and from Adobe’s other apps like Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Premiere Pro, and After Effects, to make professional standard DVDs and provide non-linear editing and special effects services, such as backgrounds, textures, and so on, for television, film, and the web. Photoshop’s primary strength is as a pixel-based image editor, unlike vector-based image editors. Photoshop also enables vector graphics editing through its Paths, Pen tools, Shape tools, Shape Layers, Type tools, Import command, and Smart Object functions. These tools and commands are convenient to combine pixel-based and vector-based images in one Photoshop document, because it may not be necessary to use more than one program. To create very complex vector graphics with numerous shapes and colors, it may be easier to use software that was created primarily for that purpose, such as Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW. Photoshop’s non-destructive Smart Objects can also import complex vector shapes.[16]

Photoshop Language availabilities

Photoshop is available in more than 20 languages. These are the following:

Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Romanian, Turkish and Ukrainian. Arabic and Hebrew are added as of Photoshop CS6.[17]

Photoshop Plugins

Photoshop functionality can be extended by add-on programs called Photoshop plugins (or plug-ins). Adobe creates some plugins, such as Adobe Camera Raw, but third-party companies develop most plugins, according to Adobe’s specifications. Some are free and some are commercial software. Most plugins work with only Photoshop or Photoshop-compatible hosts, but a few can also be run as standalone applications.

There are various types of plugins, such as filter, export, import, selection, color correction, and automation. The most popular plugins are the filter plugins (also known as a 8bf plugins), available under the Filter menu in Photoshop. Filter plugins can either modify the current image or create content. Below are some popular types of plugins, and some well-known companies associated with them:

Color correction plugins (Alien Skin Software,[18] Nik Software,[19] OnOne Software,[20] Topaz Labs Software,[21] The Plugin Site,[22] etc.)
Special effects plugins (Alien Skin Software, Auto FX Software,[23] AV Bros.,[24] Flaming Pear Software,[25] etc.)
3D effects plugins (Andromeda Software,[26] Strata,[27] etc.)

Adobe Camera Raw (also known as ACR and Camera Raw) is a special plugin, supplied free by Adobe, used primarily to read and process raw image files so that the resultant images can be processed by Photoshop.[28] It can also be used from within Adobe Bridge.

VSDIF 5 – Duplicate Photo Finder Adds Unicode Support and EXIF Information

Find Duplicate Photos

Duplicate Photo Finder

Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 5.0.0.1 is Released

We are proud to announce that version 5.0.0.1 of the award-winning Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder application is now released and available for download. There are plenty of new features and major changes in this version of the tool.

VSDIF now adds full support for UNICODE file names. What this mean is that the application can handle file names in any alphabet simultaneously. Older versions of the application could handle file name only in two alphabets at the same time.

There is a huge performance improvement in the comparison phase where the application now utilizes all the cores of a CPU. This means that on Intel i5 CPU with 4 cores that phase will run at least 4 times faster.

There is a new EXIF information panel added to the right of the results list. This panel will display the EXIF data for the currently selected image in the list. The folders and scan settings panel provide a collapse feature in order to make room for the new EXIF panel while reviewing the results.

An extra option in the auto-check panel provides features to select files with newer dates.

Improvements to the preview panel are applied too. The “First in group” image is now updated when the list is sorted. There is an option to ALT-Click an image from the results list in order to update the “First in group” image.

Improved folders list – added display of the Exclude From Auto-check and Exclude From Self-scan features. As you already know these handy features make it possible to compare two or more folders against each other and also select a “source” folder in order to exclude the items inside from auto-check.

There are plenty of other small fixes and GUI improvements. Click here to find the complete list of changes in VSDIF 5.0.0.1

EXIF Scan options - Visual Similarity Duplicate Image FinderA new scan method is available based on EXIF timestamp. “EXIF Date Time Original” will compare only the EXIF timestamp of the photos and group them according to the time difference in seconds set by the user. This new feature is very handy for finding sets of photographs taken in burst mode. If you shoot in RAW mode you can choose the best shots from the set and save valuable space by deleting the rest. (see the screenshots on the right)

The scan precision in “Visual Compare” mode is now increased and lets you set a fractional part. You can now set precise percentage e.g. – 95.1%, 95.2%, etc.

The files checked by the user are now marked in a different color (blended green) than the ones from the auto-mark feature. This lets you easily distinguish the modifications in the list that you have applied manually.

The comparing images phase is now 50% faster than before. We are constantly improving the performance of the tool and we will soon release a comparison table for your reference.
There are some slight improvements in the GUI too. Line numbers are added in the duplicate results grid for easier navigation. New keyboard shortcuts are also available :

  • Ctrl+K checks selected files (also available as a popup menu)
  • Ctrl+U unchecks selected files (also available as a popup menu)
  • Ctrl+I inverts the checked status of the selected files (also available as a popup menu)
  • Ctrl+A selects all files in the list
  • Left and Right arrow keys can now be used to navigate in the big preview window.
  • Enter and ‘C’ key now checks/unchecks the duplicate in the big preview window.
