I have a number of folders on my hard drive which contain several hundred jpg/ bitmap images, many of which are duplicated. I want to combine them all into one or two smaller folders for archiving in an organised manner. Where the duplicated pictures have the same number it has been no problem as Windows Picture and Fax viewer draws attention to them if you try to copy and paste or drag and drop to a folder which already contains the image. What I would like is an ‘image recognition’ system or programme which would do the same thing even when the file names have been changed to suit other archival systems over the years - as in the case in point . Short of printing out hundreds of thumbnails and trying to reconcile them has anyone any suggestions as to how this could be done?
Thanks Mango Grummet and Pesala - what a super little programme. I was delighted with its performance! In about 20 minutes, even checking the reults manually as I went, I processed over 500 files, weeding out about 70 duplicates. Great - thanks for your help.
