What is Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro?

As the name suggests, Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro is a software designed to help users remove not only duplicate photos but also delete similar images.

Duplicate photos, generally are a result of clicking 3 to 4 photos in the same place and pose, to get the best shot possible. Or, they could also be downloaded photos that you forgot about and re-downloaded them later.

There Are Two Main Options In Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro:

Exact Match

This option helps the user to remove duplicate copies of an image which are identical. Duplicate images accumulate in our system for many reasons like downloading an image twice, similar image sent by more than person etc. The advanced features in out cameras and smartphones are the main culprit for multiple copies of the same images as they rename the images by adding a suffix and copy the same photo more than once.

Similar Match

This option helps the user delete those images which have certain similar features. There are a few settings which can be tweaked as per user’s discretion.The Similar Option looks like this:    Example of a Similar Image.(Notice the leaves on top-centre)

Matching Level In Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro

The first setting and probably the most important one which the user will encounter is the Matching Level. Matching level determines the degree of similarity between two images. There is a pointer which can be positioned to Low on the Left to High on the right. The comparison of the levels has been highlighted below:

  • Low Matching Level:

Choosing this level enables the user to group and delete images with a wide level of diversification. Notice the image below. As the Slider is positioned on the left towards low, the difference in the images can be observed with the Butterfly on top of the flower in the first image and the same butterfly is near to the flower on the second image.

  • Middle Matching Level:

The Slider Position in the below image is at the default setting. When a user slides the pointer towards the middle, he/she reduces the degree of the similarity between two images. The search results with the slider at this position would be less as compared to the above option. Notice that the butterfly is nearer to the flower now which will result in near identical images to be grouped for deletion.

  • High Matching Level:

The Slider when positioned to the far right reduces the degree of similarity and the search result is narrowed down even further. Notice that when the slider is at High, the two images below are almost identical.

Bitmap Size

The Second setting while choosing the Similar Match Option is the Bitmap Size. The search results depend on the user selection of Bitmap settings. It helps to manage the accuracy of the search result by adjusting the slider between performance and quality.

  • The default setting of the Bitmap size is 64 Pixels as shown below.

  • The user must slide towards performance for quick and near accurate results.

  • The user must slide the pointer towards quality for highly accurate results.

Time Interval

The third setting while running the similar match option is Time Interval. It helps the user to select the difference between the time interval of the two photos which are likely to be near identical. The default setting of the time gap between two images is 30 seconds.

The maximum time difference considered between two images is 24 hours. Sliding the pointer towards left enables the software to select and group more images which are like each other.

The minimum time difference considered between two images is 1 sec. This setting can be achieved by sliding the pointer to far right. This setting is useful when the user has taken rapid fire snapshots in quick succession to capture a moment and then can select the best one among them and delete the rest.

GPS

The final setting in the similar match option is GPS. As the name suggest, it checks the embedded coordinates of the photos. The default setting is set at five meters.

The minimum setting is one meter and when the pointer is positioned at ‘Less’, then the software will group only those photos as similar where the actual distance between two images is one meter.

The maximum setting is 100 meters which would be considered while scanning the photos added by the user.

One of the default settings of Duplicate Photos Fixer is the minimum file size included in scan is set at a default setting of 50KB. IF the user wants to eliminate duplicate image files below the file size of 50 kb. Then the user can do so by changing the settings.

Clicking on the settings option on the top right corner of the screen, enables the user to access the settings panel of the Duplicate Photos Fixer. In the settings menu, the second option ‘Scan Criteria’ helps the user to select the image file extensions. Below this box there is an option of ‘Minimum File Size included in scan’ which is set at 50kb by default.

The user can change the minimum file size by editing the text box or clicking on the scroll button. The data storage unit can also be switched from KB to MB. The minimum file size of the image that can be imported is 10 KB and the maximum is 1023 MB.

NOTE:

All the duplicate marked photos will be moved to the recycle bin after the user clicks on “Delete Marked”. The user must then delete them manually from the recycle bin. However, if the image is stored on a network or external drive, then the image will be permanently deleted. Download here.

Images with .raw extension are not supported by Duplicate Photos Fixer. A RAW file is an image clicked by digital cameras such as Sony, Canon etc. RAW files are used for storing actual untampered image data as captured by a digital camera.

Duplicate Photos Fixer is a powerful tool that actually helps to cherish one’s memories and relive the moments as it assists in providing the user a duplicate free and organized photo library.

    Is is possible to use this software to find images within a certain range of a GPS point? This is not the intended use but since it searches GPS it would be nice to specify a certain GPS point so that I could find all photos taken within a specified range of that point. I need to de-duplicate my images but I also want to find images of certain areas to see how that area has changed over time and my filing was not good for a period of time.

      Hi,

      Thank you for your comment. Duplicate Photo Fixer Pro takes in account the GPS Longitude and Latitude from the metadata of the images. It then compares these values and provided a duplicate match result based on them. If the range of difference between them is between 1 to 100 meters, then the images would be shown, else it would not consider them as duplicates. There is no provision to manually enter the GPS coordinates and search for the images yet.

    Does your software compare Metadata when checking duplicate photos?
    I have many duplicates, some have partial Metadata, some have FULL Metadata. I don’t want to delete photos with Full Metadata.

    Thanks.

      Hi Cathy, Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro, does compare the Metadata of the photos as one of the criteria in identifying the duplicates. Also, I would like to suggest Photos Exif Editor, an app designed to edit the Metadata of your photos. You can download this app from this link. https://www.exifedit.com/for-windows/.

    Will this program save scans if I can’t get to them immediately to delete the duplicates? Other programs I’ve tried do not, so I have to repeat scans, which is time consuming.

      Hi Peggy, Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro does not save the scan results which means you will have to go through the process again. However, I can assure you that DPF is one of the fastest software out there that quickly detects and groups the duplicate photos.To stay updated and get more articles like this, do subscribe to our notifications and follow us on Social Media.

    I would like a software program that would search the hard drive of my old PC for all photos and images, eliminate duplicates, and then save them onto an external drive (or maybe into the cloud). These photos could be all over the hard drive in numerous directories. But there are some of these files that contain different photos but they may have the same filename (like “1.xxxx” or “101.xxx”). My concern is that the photos with identical names may be overwritten or may not copy to the external drive in this process. How does Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro handle photos and file names like these and can your program handle the task that I want to do? Can the program move the files to a different drive as part of the process of eliminating duplicates? Will it retain files with the same filename if the content is different?

    Please also confirm that photos with identical / very similar content but different file names will be eliminated. Is file name one of the criteria used to determine whether a photo is a duplicate? Thanks.

      Hi John, the Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro does not save the non-duplicate files to another drive or to cloud storage. It scans for the images in the folders where they are located and deletes the duplicates while keeping the originals. The DPF does not use the filename as a scanning criterion at all, which implies that if two different photos have the same file name, then they will not be classified as duplicates. And yes, all images with identical / very similar content will be picked up and placed in a group and deleted only after the user’s consent. Finally, images with the same filename but different content will not appear in the search results unless there is a similarity in the content between them.

    Is this program able to search external hard drives, specifically WD My Book?

    • Dheeraj Manghnani
      Hi Joelle, Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro does support scanning and deleting duplicate images on external drives including WD My Book. You can download the trial version first and click on the Add Photos or Add Folders button on the left-bottom corner of the application window. By doing so, you will find a new window that allows you to navigate between different folders, internal drives, and any external drives like a hard drive or a flash disk. Once selected, you can run a scan which will group all the duplicates, allowing you to choose which ones to keep and trash the remaining.

    Hello, I have 2 folders which contain duplicate photos. One folder is located at ‘/myharddrive/photosfolderA’ and the other is at ‘/myharddrive/photosfolderB’. Each of these folders has multiple subfolders. I’d like to add these 2 top level folders to Duplicate Photos Fixer Pro for scanning and then have the option in the program to automatically prefer to mark photos for deletion in only the B folder, while leaving the photos in the A always in place. I’ve looked for this option but have not found it, is it possible to do this? Thanks.

      Hi Frank, You can mark duplicate photos from a preset folder only. However, this option is not available to choose from the first interface of the application. You will have to follow these steps mentioned below:

      1) You can select two different folders, you wish to scan and then click on the Scan for Duplicates button.
      2) It will scan for duplicates and display all the duplicate groups. Pick a group and click on a single image on that group and it will display the location path below.
      3) Now click again on the second image in the group and you will see a different path.
      4) Once you have identified the image with the location that you want to protect (Folder A in your example), make a right click and from the contextual menu choose Automark Protection and the Protect this Folder.
      5) This will ensure that no image from the protected folder will be marked or deleted.

      I hope that helps!
