Does anyone know of batch photo comparison software ?

Hi,

I have a large number of photos, 7000+ which have been taken at rehearsals for a show we are producing Chess the Musical and I was wondering if there is any software which could bulk these together into similar images as sometimes there are 3,4,5 or even more of the same, or very similar image and instead of having to go through one by one, it would be much easier to have them grouped.

Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated !

James.

I don't know of any software

that does this and if one existed, I'm sure it would cost a good amount of money. Teaching a program what pictures to consider alike without having a "human" context would be very difficult.

Thanks for the Google pointer.

Hi Sovreign, many thanks for this suggestion. Whilst I am guessing it won't do exactly what I was looking for, it could be a very useful tool.

I thought I'd heard about some software which in particular could find very similar images (ie almost duplicates) which used some sort of fractal calculation. Maybe the google 'similar' function does something along these lines, I will give it a go with a small subset of the photos and see what happens. Will update here to complete the thread.

Best Regards,

James.
