dupeGuru Picture Edition is a lightweight software application built specifically for helping you scan user-defined folders for duplicate images.
The main panel is clean and lets you add the folders that you want to scan using the built-in browse button or drag-and-drop support.
During our testing dupeGuru Picture Edition was able to process 105 pictures in two minutes. It is quite friendly with system resources, so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.
If duplicate photos are found in the specified directory, the program opens up the Results panel which offers you additional information about each item, such as filename, file path, size, dimensions, and percentage for the matching criteria. Plus, you can view a side-by-side comparison of two images.
What’s more, you can send the selected items to the Recycle Bin, move or copy files to a custom location from your computer, delete or rename pictures, remove the selected items from the Results list or add them to the Ignore list, as well as open images with our default program or open their file location.
Last but not least, you can make the utility display only the duplicate images, clear the picture cache, export the results to CSV or HTML file format, use hotkeys, as well as customize the columns that show you extra info about each file (e.g. size, dimensions, EXIF, dupe count).
The tool comprises several tweaking parameters that help you choose between two scan types (contents or EXIF data), adjust the filter’s power (from more result to fewer), match pictures of different dimensions, use regular expressions, remove empty folders when you delete or move items, adjust the font size, as well as write command-line parameters.
All in all, dupeGuru Picture Edition offers a handy suite of features for helping you detect, delete, and compare duplicate files, and is suitable for all types of users.
