The new version of the product is mainly optimized towards a better performance. We have customers with huge image databases that will be happy with the new improvements. Please read below for the list of changes.
Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder will be released soon. This is an innovative new tool that allows you to easily find duplicate images. This is not a simple tool that will compare the files by name, size or date. Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder uses complex algorithms to find similar images in a way that a human does. It compares the content of your images rather than the names or sizes. It can find similar images even if they are stored in different file formats and sizes. Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder is so advanced that it can detect similarity in a picture of a person shot from two different close to each other angles. Of course the tools gives you the ability also to double check the similar images before deleting them giving you a list with similar images and a full sized preview. The tool will save you many hours of work that you would otherwise spend on checking the images by hand and will save you huge amount of disk space that you would otherwise waste storing duplicate information.
Now we give you even more power with the ability to create web galleries using video files. This new feature will save you a huge amount of money that you would otherwise spent on buying expensive video editing software. The biggest advantage is that it not only will save you money, but it will save you the time that you would have lost capturing a frame from each video. Now all that headaches are gone. You can even specify an exact frame for each screen shot and plenty of other options.
