I was wondering if there are any programs that will scan my HD for dupe jpegs?

Yeah, nothing worse than being almost there, you know, right on the verge, and opening up a dupe. You're like, "Hey, I've already seen and exhausted that pic!" and it takes you out of the mood like that. *snap*

Bummer.

Can't you search for them yourself - the jpegs I mean - like go to start - run - search - *.jpg all the pics will pop up and you can just scan thru them yourself. Or select them all - cut - paste them in a folder - a nice pop-up will ask - file already exist do you wish to replace?

After just a few quadsucks you can easily have 10,000 pictures.

I'll have to sample that program one day...

yeah but some are so good you gotta have more than one. :lol: ;)

I'm of the mind that the Newsgroups have recycled the same 1,000 porn pics over the last few years :lol:

I've used that before, works well. Not sure what you lose with the trial version though.

You can try File Dedupe too, here's a link:

The real problem is dealing with resized/cropped versions of the same print. I'm glad to see that there are finally programs that can handle it. Not that long ago, it was an entirely manual process.

As someone who can't write a lick of code outside of Fortran, it still seems like a relatively easy task to program that logic. Basically it would involve decoding the jpg into a raw format, creating an arbitrary, scalable matrix, and then averaging color vectors at each point on the matrix. Any time a picture matched 50% pluss of the vectors, it would be presented as a dupe immediately or filed in a list for review by the user.

Unique Filer works great. It deals very well with resized/cropped versions of the same picture. It's nagware, but I liked it so much, I actually paid for it!
