Imagine that you have one folder that contains 20 photos. Finding duplicates and getting rid of them or moving to another place is not at all a problem: you can just find a minute and look through them.
And now imagine looking through 20,000 photos spread all across your hard disk, many of them having strange names like 'Photo0123.jpg'. A minute will surely not be enough for such a challenge. No wonder you gradually lose track of your expanding collection and are likely to suddenly find thirty copies of your grandmas photo in ten different places. Of course, there are sophisticated programs for managing photo collections, but quite often they are so sophisticated that there is no making head or tail of it, especially for an inexperienced user.
If you are reading this and seriously considering the probability of finding those thirty copies on your own computer, then it's time for you to meet Duplicate Photo Finder, an ideal solution for finding and managing duplicates in home photo collections.
What strikes your eye when you first launch the program is its user-friendly interface that is clearly structured and completely intuitive. What strikes you secondly is the wide range of functions Duplicate Photo Finder is ready to offer. Search the whole disk or specify any certain folders, browse the found duplicates to be sure they are identical and copy, move, swap or delete the photos you don't need - use the program features to their maximum. It is even possible to look for rotated and resized pictures and set any level of similarity for the photos to be regarded duplicates. Finally, when you need to skim through a large number of photos, you can use the thumbnail mode, which is less accurate but a lot faster.
This program runs under Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista and requires so little space you won't even notice its presence on your disk cleaned of useless duplicates.
