Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 18.104.22.168 Provides Support For .HEIC, .HEIF HEVC Encoded Images
Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder provides support for the High Efficiency Image File Format – .heic and .heif images. These image formats are supported via external codec which should be installed prior to running the latest version. There are many HEIC codecs freely available on the Internet – just search for “heic codec” and install one on your system in order to enable the support for HEIC files. The “CopyTrans” heic codec is tested with VSDIF and working properly. The performance of HEIC file comparison depends on the installed codec and that is why a stable and fast implementation is a MUST. This new feature is available in the PRO and CORPORATE versions of VSDIF.
High Efficiency Image File Format
High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIF) is a file format for individual images and image sequences. It was developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) and is defined by MPEG-H Part 12 (ISO/IEC 23008-12). The MPEG group claims that twice as much information can be stored in a HEIF image as in a JPEG image of the same size, resulting in a better quality image.
The HEIF specification also defines the means of storing High Efficiency Video Codec (HEVC)-encoded intra images and HEVC-encoded image sequences in which inter prediction is applied in a constrained manner.
HEIF files are compatible with the ISO Base Media File Format (ISOBMFF, ISO/IEC 14496-12) and can also include other media streams, such as timed text and audio.
HEIF image files are stored with filename extensions .heif or .heic.
