Similar Photo Cleaner is an application designed to help you identify and remove duplicate and similar photos. Consequently, you will enjoy a clean photo library and recover valuable disk space.
The program has a clear-cut and intuitive graphic interface, which makes managing the tool's functions an easy task. The utility supports loading individual or multiple images, entire folders of files, as well as your photo library at a dash. The operation can be done either by browsing your computer from within the application or by using the drag-and-drop method. The next logical step is to press the Scan button, which will unleash two scanning options. Therefore, you can choose to either look for exact duplicate photos or search for similar images, which may differ slightly within certain limits you determine. The application also comes with an Auto-mark option that will check automatically identical photos except one in each group, according to the default rules set in the Preferences window. If you don't trust the program on taking decisions on your behalf, you have the ability to preview and check the metadata of each picture manually so you can take the proper decision on which photos to delete and which to preserve. For fast scan results, you can set extension and file size filters. Furthermore, you are allowed to exclude certain folders from being scanned, either for shortening the scan duration or for protecting crucial files from being accidentally deleted.

With smart scan filters, handy auto-mark options, and easy-to-enable functions, Similar Photo Cleaner is a reliable assistant whenever you wish to clean your photo library and regain wasted disk space.
