dupeGuru Picture Edition offers an easy and convenient solution to find duplicate image files. When the scan is completed, you have the ability to clean the results permanently for storage space reasons, or you can move the duplicate files to another computer location and rename them.
The program’s interface is rather functional than attractive. The tool's appearance won't impress you much, but the rich scanning features will definitely make you consider this application a reliable picture duplicate detector. The fact that you can use it for free is another argument to install the tool and use it whenever you want to organize your image library.
The search engine isn't limited to finding perfect file matches. The utility performs a thorough analysis of the image files stored in selected folders and takes into account multiple detection criteria, mostly related to the files' content. This way, the scanning process includes parameters like an image size, file type, and picture dimensions.
The modification date and the EXIF timestamps can also play an important role in identifying duplicates that differ slightly. You can control the display of the results list by selecting or deselecting specific detection criteria from the “Columns” drop-down menu. No matter what future action you intend to take – delete the duplicates, move them to a separate folder, or preserve them under different names – you have the ability to preview the files and to check detailed information about the duplicates identified.
The list of results can be exported to XHTML and CSV files. In addition, the program provides a post-scan filtering option that allows you to find specific files easily within a large list of results.
dupeGuru Picture Edition is a feature-rich image duplicate detector. It is worth using whenever you wish to clean your image library of idle pictures that take up precious computer storage space for no reason. Unfortunately, the array of supported image formats is rather limited – still, it works with the most popular image file types which makes the tool perfect for home users.
