IDEA - Picture searcher
« on: June 21, 2013, 08:20:19 AM »
Somebody mentioned this in the Gizmo forum and it seems like such a fantastic idea I thought I'd bring it up here.

Basically, a program (ideally in Windows context menu) which operates like Tineye or Google Image Search but on local hard drives not the internet. You right click your pic, select the search and a target directory, and the prog finds images which are the same or similar.

I have a feeling it's probably way beyond the remit of coding snacks, but I thought I'd mention it anyway...

** My apologies by the way - I posted this first in the wrong place after reading the guidelines and forgetting to come to the right thread. If a mod could be so kind as to delete that one for me.  :-[ **

Hey there .o/

It may not be exactly what you asked for, but you may be interested in Visipics ( see http://www.softpedia...thers/VisiPics.shtml for example).

From the description, it seems as if Visipics depends on your telling it what directory you want it to look in.  I think a more useful program would be able to search your entire computer, or at least an entire drive.  One program that does this is IDM's UltraFinder, which can also find text files (not all that well, IMHO).  It does a better job with finding duplicate photos, but it's rather over-priced (again, IMHO) at $49.95.  I mention it only to suggest a feature that would be nice to have that Visipics doesn't offer.
