Smart Selection
Usually, if you need to use our duplicate image finder, you must have a lot of duplicate pictures on your computer.

Therefore, except to quickly, comprehensively and accurately find duplicate pictures, another important function of our product is to quickly and accurately delete unwanted ones.

To this end, we investigated and analyzed a large number of actual user behaviors and the reasons for repeated pictures, innovatively developed the powerful automation function - "smart selection".

The so-called "automation function" means that it has taken effect according to the best experience even you have not made any settings! Of course, you can also make adjustments as needed.

Click the "Options" button (gear-shaped) on the main interface to view or modify the current smart selection settings:

Now explain one by one:
"Use smart selection for the result listing": if you don’t like or need this feature, uncheck it to turn it off, it's enabled by default.
"Only keep the following file, and check others in a duplicate group": our product will retain the required files according to the settings of the following 4 conditions, and check other unneeded ones (in order to delete the checked items once).
"Size" - the bigger ones are kept by default. For pictures, generally the bigger the clearer, they may be the original pictures, so keep them by default.
"Created Date" - the most recently generated files are retained by default. Since you are operating them recently, the files generated by the last operation are likely to be retained.
"Path" - keep the shortest ones by default, they may be the original files and needs to be kept.
"Filename" - the shortest ones are retained by default. Generally, the copied files will be pre/suffixed artificially or by the system (such as "copy", "back up", etc.), so the shortest ones are usually the original files and needs to be retained.

Note: the above conditions are a step-by-step relationship. An example under the default settings as above screenshot: if the shortest path can be found from a set of repeated photos, then the filename will not be compared.

In addition to smart selection, our product also provides the following multiple check methods:
  • Manual checking: review the duplicates carefully and check the unwanted pictures manually.
  • Uncheck all: under the <Check> button on the result interface (the following three methods are in the same position), if you made some wrong checking, you can do "Uncheck all" and then do checking again.
  • Invert checks: usually it is used to manually check the necessary pictures and then do "Invert checks" to quickly check all unwanted pictures.
  • Check by paths: will show a list that contains all paths for current duplicates, if the unwanted pictures are stored in some specific paths, this feature is very useful.
  • Check by drives: will list all drives for checking, if the unwanted pictures are stored in some specific drives, this feature is very useful.
The above checking methods are shown in the following screenshot:
