Ctrl+F for images

Like Google image search... but for images on your PC
  [vote for,

I use a lot of images, many are similar but not the same. Often I'll have a cropped .jpg of a full-sized .tiff and I want to find the original. So, I should be able to drag it into the search bar or hit Ctrl+F and boom!!! all the images with similar pixel distributions come up. Then I'll be "aaaah, I was calling it "ER-SURFACE" back then... stupid 2011 me..."

Get on it people!

Finds duplicate, modified and even derivative images in your image collection. [tatterdemalion, Dec 18 2013]


       I downloaded and use a free program called "Awesome Duplicate Photo Finder" [Link] and it works pretty well. You can search for photos which are only 100% matches or set the percentage to where you like in order to find photos you might have only touched up a bit.

       Can it have a short-cut to scratch incriminating photos as well, please?

       Yes. Windows searching is incredibly annoying. It should have a nice big advanced interface where I can find files with ease. I'm utterly bemused at how Google can serve pages from the internet faster than I can get a .tiff from a local hard drive.
