AntiDupl is a free, open-source program that you can use to find and reveal duplicate images.
It supports all major graphic formats and helps you to avoid searching for duplicate images manually and automate this task.
The typical computer user these days has vast collections of photos and images in a whole range of different formats. And, inevitably, within these enormous and growing groups of pictures- there are bound to be some duplicate files. Over time, when a user has collected a vast amount of photos, these duplicate data can end up consuming large amounts of memory. This can slow down your computer, take up space you might instead use for other things, limit the useful life of your machine- and make your photo albums challenging to manage.
A lot of people will attempt to remove duplicate pictures manually, but with an extensive collection, this can be a monumental task, and with a broad enough selection- it can be practically impossible. That’s where AntiDupl comes in.
AntiDupl, quite merely, automates the process of eliminating duplicate images in most common image formats, such as; JPEG, GIF, BMP, PNG, EMF, WMF, EXIF, JP2, PSD, DDS, ICON, TIFF, and TGA.
The software works by comparing images, eliminating images that are identical and reducing your image collection to just one of each image. In cases where two images are similar but not identical, AntiDupl will give you an opportunity to review the pictures before deciding whether or not you want to delete one and keep the other. The program can also spot defects in images and bring them to your attention so that you can decide whether to fix it, delete it, or leave it as it is.
After AntiDupl has finished clearing out all of the unwanted image copies within your photo collection, you may find vast amounts of data space cleared out that you might have thought was indispensable.
AntiDupl is free to download and use, and is entirely indispensable for professional photographers and anyone with an extensive collection of photos or other images.
