Re: declone .16 finds similar pics

using beta .19 to find similar pics: Agree with Gandalf - this just doesn't work for me. I would prefer to be able to turn off all attributes - ignore names, ignore date taken, ignore size, ignore them all. If Aspect Ratio was an attribute, that would make sense. Otherwise the only measure considere...

Re: declone .11 finds similar files too

Not impressed! 98%, finds files that are totally different. Agreed. Not at all useful for me in finding similar pictures. Seems to be too much emphasis on similarity of attributes and not nearly enough (or any?) on similarity of the images themselves. I need to find images that look similar regardl...

Re: declone: with duplicate selection wizard

i haven't thought about working with the results while the search is active, as they are premature and more could be added. The best policy is to ignore declone and do something else until the search is complete I wouldn't want to start selecting or deleting anything while the search is active. I'd...

Re: declone: now finds duplicates

have you ever tried xplorer2 similar pic feature? www.zabkat.com/blog/bad-photo-cleanup.htm I tried it a few times shortly after you first introduced it. My recollection is that it didn't work as well for my purposes as the apps I mentioned earlier. I'll try it again. Do you plan to use the same lo...

Re: declone: now finds duplicates

Gandolf, Yes, give the latest version of Find.Same.Images.OK another try. I'm using 4.49 and see false positives at the 90% comparison level only when there is a very tiny difference between images. More often I have to crank it down to 80% or 75% to match images that DupDetector catches at 99% . I ...

Re: declone: with duplicate selection wizard

1) While Phase 3 is running, you see the first few results, but you can't interact with that window at all until phase 3 is finished. Would it be possible to allow at least some interaction, for instance: Scroll down the list to see more than the first few items? Expand the width of the Folder Path...

Oh, Declone doesn't do similarity check yet, so can't compare.

Re: declone: now finds duplicates

The odd occasions I've tried similar file checking utilities I've not been impressed. One regarded as similar a photo of my black cat and one of a Caribbean friend, who dresses in black, as similar! Gandalf, Two recommendations for finding similar photos: 1) DupDetector from Prismatic Software I us...

Re: testers wanted

When "Find exact duplicates only" is selected, I thought that would mean 100% content match, but I see that you need to also need to check "Compare file content (slower)" on the advanced tab in order to get an exact match on content. Does anyone else find that a bit non-intuitive? That might need so...

Re: Show Free space in target of junction/link?

Cool!

One more note should this someday considered as worthy of adding as an option:

It would need to find the free space of the ultimate target rather than the immediate target in the case that the target of a junction is another junction.

Re: Show Free space in target of junction/link?

Well, I was thinking maybe it could be one of those advanced options that I could turn on to satisfy my personal fetishes without burdening everyone else.

But if I'm the only that would use this, forget it.

Re: Show Free space in target of junction/link?

Of course.

But I'd like to see the free space without having to go into the target.

Show Free space in target of junction/link?

Apologies if this has been asked and answered before.

When you navigate into a folder junction or directory symbolic link whose target is on a different drive, would it be possible to have the status bar show the free space of the target drive rather than the location of the junction/link?

Re: New duplicate selection feature - turn off?

If indeed there's a difference, please let me know exactly what are you doing. How are you loading folders A and B for example? I'm selecting A and B in the main window, then flatten. I check for duplicates in the scrap window as it initially appears, not doing any sorting. if you manually put stuf...

Re: New duplicate selection feature - turn off?

Just upgraded from pro to ultimate, and found a discrepancy between the two in the way duplicates are selected. Say you have two folders A and B with identical contents. Select A and B and flatten. Find Duplicates. In professional, the files from B are selected. In ultimate, the files from A are sel...
