WHen looking at two images to decide which to delete I am given no information about filesize or resolution to help make my desision. Also there is no automatic delete feature thus the software is virtually useless to me, tho it is impressive. --Andrew Baits
If you are on Windows XP, just hover the mouse cursor above a thumbnail to see its informations. If you are using Windows Vista and VisiPics 1.25, the information bar which displays filesize and resolution is dark and difficult to read. I recommand updating to VisiPics 1.30 which fixes this color problem.
Also, you can use "Auto-select" to speed up the delete process. After your pictures are loaded, click "Auto-select", it will mark automatically the pictures so you can review which ones are being deleted. When satisfied, click "Delete" to erase them.
What you call automatic delete is the combinaison of "Auto-select" and "Delete".

File Size and Resolution
Yes, v1.30 does show it when you hover over the image. What would be even better is to have the ability to click on the image and have it open in an external program. I have close to 1 million images on my system and it's very difficult to manage. I have used another program for years which did a great job until the volume got to be too big.
I just download visipics and am very impressed with it's ability to catch ALL truly duplicate images. If it just had this feature it would greatly improve the program.
Okay, it already opens the browser when you double-click on the main picture. Shouldn't be too difficult to add this. I take note. --Ozone Grif 13:03, 21 August 2008 (UTC)
Thanks...that would be great. I use Lview Pro as my default external graphics program. I know it's very old but I only use it to view the difference in the dups my other program finds. It's a great timesaver. I do have one other issue and I don't know if this thread is appropriate. When processing a large number of pics at once, it consumes almost all of my memory. I loaded a drive with about 340,000 pics and I have 2gb of memory. If you can resolve these 2 things you will have an AWESOME program and I'll definitely swith to VISIPICS! It really works great..

Secunia says VisiPics (ImageMagick, actually - which I do not have installed) is insecure because of a DLL used in ImageMagick. This board has a link to a page that says ImageMagick's problem has been fixed.
Can't we just extract CORE_RL_magick_.dll from ImageMagick and copy it into VisiPics' directory to fix VisiPics?
The program "forgets" the pictures I've maked 'ignore'
After not using visipics for a long period of time, the program forgets all the pictures Ive marked "ignore". This doesnt happen if I load a project soon after saving, but it happens if I dont use it for months.
What kinds of things would make it forget the files I've marked "Ignore"?
Also, how does the "save ignored pictures" under File work? It doesnt get a tick or anything when I click on it, so I cant tell what it does. Doesnt it save the ignored pictures when you save a project?
