There is definitely no shortage of duplicate file finders for the Windows operating system. Most of the programs on the other hand are complicated to use which may confuse or irritate some users.
Duplicate Photo Finder’s premise is to be a comfortable and easy to use application to find and manage duplicate images stored on the PC.
The interface of the application can be best described as minimalistic but sufficient for most users. It begins with the selection of a comparison method at the top. Duplicate Photo Finder supports comparison by file sizes or file hashes. The first option is fast, the second more reliable but slower.
A scan can then be started once the original folder and the duplicate folder have been selected from the folder browser. The program will not search through folders recursively which can limit its use if photos are stored in a lot of subfolders. It would be nice if the developer could add the option to include subfolders and their images in the scan.
All duplicate images that are found in the process are displayed in a listing at the bottom of the screen. The interesting option here is that it is possible to select them to display both photos next to each other in the interface which makes it easy to look through the duplicate images before they are deleted.
The program offers controls to delete some or all of the duplicate images at once. Duplicate Photo Finder is handy software program for the Windows operating system. It requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 and runs fine on 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows. Downloads are available at the homepage of the developer.
