Duplicate images script

Postby emil_pavlov on Wed Sep 05, 2012 5:14 pm

I want to make a script to check my picture collection ( a few thousand pictures) for duplicates. The script should automatically delete the file with smaller resolution, or if they're the same either one of them. I found that "findimagedupes" is very good for this purpose, but I couldn't get it to work the way I wanted. Can somebody help me, please?

I know it's been a while since you posted this, but do you still require help?

If so, what does the file tree look like (bunch of folders in one, multiple folders in folders, etc)?
Also, are the resolutions found in the filename? (As in there exists something like both image_640x480.jpg and image_800x600)
Never accept the simple answers; the journey through complexity is where learning takes place.
