Hello, I understand the effort for checking for duplicates which differ due to rotation.

But maybe as an option you could add the 90 degree check. Due to different import programs of digital cameras sometime the picture is transfered as it is and sometimes using the ETIF information if the camera was rotated. This information is applied to the photo during import and rotated as well.

Therefore I have quite some duplicated which differ "just" by 90 degree but are not detected by the program.

I would be a great help if you could add this feature.

Kind Regards,

Sven


  • Hello Sven, That option can be done in the next version. It shouldn't be too difficult to implement. I will write a "To Do" page in the Wiki to follow possible evolutions. Yours, --Ozone Grif 02:48, 1 January 2008 (CET)

Why can't I see the "discussions" page ?

I always got a: "You've followed a link to a page that doesn't exist yet. To create the page, start typing in the box below (see the help page for more info). If you are here by mistake, just click your browser's back button. "

Please email answer to my email adresss *****@*****.ca

I want to contact the authors for some questions and bugs but found no email address

Thank you Peter

Is there a limit on how many pics can be compared?

I am running Windows XP Pro SP2 on a system with an Intel Pentium 4 and a 3.60GHz chip and 1GB of memory. I have tried to scan a directory with about 206,000 images. Visipics scan about 200,000 files before it freezes. I've tried running in several times but it just stops and when I check the running applications under the Windows Task Manager it say's the application has stopped responding. It's frustrating because it takes more than 5 hours to scan.

I'm curious to know if there is a limit to how many pictures Visipics can check? I know I need to add more memory because it uses all available physical memory as well as cache memory. My dilema is that I have roughly 1,000,000 pics that need to be compared across multiple directories and this has become an issue.

Thanks for your assistance.

Hello Michael, try to check the option "Thread Sync". It helps preventing freezes. There is no theorical limit to the number of pictures you can load, but your memory. With 1gb you can indeed scan around 200,000 pictures before reaching the maximum cap. For 1,000,000 you will require 4gb of memory and a dual core to speed up the scanning process. I suggest you manually scan folders after folders to not overload your computer. You can also scan one folder, then save the projet to reuse it later when you get new photos.

Thanks Ozone, I'll try the sync thing. I am adding 3 more gigs of memory next week. Unfortunately my motherboard can handle 8gigs but Windows XP only see's 4gigs unless I use 64bit XP. Also, is it possible to filter out the folder settings directory globally? I have to tell it to ignore pages and pages of pics that aren't duplicates.

It is not possible to set folder names filters to prevent them from loading. But you can ignore a whole folder and subfolders with the button "Ignore folder". --Ozone Grif 18:11, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
