Visual Similarity Duplicate Image Finder 18.104.22.168 Provides Support For .HEIC, .HEIF HEVC Encoded ImagesVisual 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. First of all, you have to install the heic codec prior to running the latest version. There are many HEIC codecs freely available on the Internet – just search for “heic codec”. Installing one on your system is all you need to do in order to enable the support for HEIC files. We have tested the “CopyTrans” heic codec with VSDIF and it is working properly. The performance of HEIC file comparison depends on the installed codec, therefore, a stable and fast implementation is a MUST. This new feature is available in the PRO and CORPORATE versions of VSDIF.
How To Find Duplicate HEIC, HEIF, HEVC Photos
The process of finding duplicate heic photos does not require any special settings bedsides the heic codec. Just add the folders that should be scanned and the duplicate photo finder tool will do the rest automatically. You can compare heic file with jpg or any other image file that is supported by the tool. A detailed tutorial on how to find duplicate photos is available on our web site.

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). They can also include other media streams, such as timed text and audio.
HEIF image files are stored with filename extensions .heif or .heic.
