Our customer say

Image Comparer - Well done!

"WOW!!! Thank you for this program! It just saved my computer! I'm a photographer and it's even hard to count the number of photos on my hard drive all in different formats... Of course, many of them are really very alike, but not exact copies... So, Image Comparer helped really a lot it managed to go through so many photos, to analyze them, then recognize and present the pairs... Well done!))"
