sorting many images for doubles [SOLVED]

Post by 52ROSt »

Beside flying me to the moon, Linux can do a lot of things!

I have very many jpg-files in various folders.

Is there an application or command(s), which can do a bulk comparison, meaning select a folder or its content completely and see where in other folders are the same images?

Try the Geeqie image viewer. It has a duplicate image search tool http://www.geeqie.org/features.html

geeqie is in the repositories.
Coming to a thread near you: Lots of bragging about my AMD 5950X. Currently delayed due to high demand.
It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.

fdupes is a command line tool that will find duplicate files of any type. Works very well, and is in the repositories also

I've been using XnView MP https://www.xnview.com/en/

That command-line fdupes looks interesting for scripting...

I am also using XnView (again) but did not know that it can identify dupes. I will have a look! Thanks!
