Finding Similar Photos Within Your Folders
Finding similar photos is a tricky business, especially for a computer, for many reasons. For example, some
people may consider two different garden scenes similar when comparing photos manually, but may not want to confuse
them when choosing between what to keep and what to discard. For a computer, things get a little more messy because the
concept of similarity is unknown to a computer unless specifically instructed to do so for some purpose. For example, a bird flying in the deep
blue sky, and an aeroplane, also in the deep blue sky, could be considered similar.
Within the scope of this software, similarity is taken to mean almost identical. These include resized photos, photos stored
in a different formats (jgpeg, gifs, bitmaps, raw), downloaded from different places such as Facebook or Google Photos,
or photos with very small differences.
For us, this is a continuous work in progress, especially because many people want many different things. But we do get excellent
results albeit with the odd choice every now and again. Still, we added Similarity to our software because we know you will find
Finding Similar Photos
This software finds similar photos. Such photos may not always have obvious differences such as the one hereunder,
and it is often difficult to determine the difference between similar photos just by looking at them. We therefore
provide a tool which allows you to view such photos Side-by-Side or Superimposed.
Showing Superimposed Photos
As exaplined above, photos may be shown side by side or superimposed, and you may also choose to show or hide photos, or render
them semi-transparent to immediately note the difference in photos. In the photos above, we superimpose two photos and use
the options on the right hand side to render the top-most photo semi-transparent.
