Re: Similar images?

... PSU's "similarity" detection is designed to find images that are identical but look different. ... Ah, that explains my confusion, I was going by the assumption that the reverse was the case - not identical but look the same. which is why I couldn't figure out why the four sample images of the ...

Re: Similar images?

Wondering if there was a better solution than to go through my images one at a time to manually find similar images, that is those that are not binary copies but have just about the same subject matter, I came across the little program "Similar Image Finder." Ran a few tests on my image folders and ...

Re: Similar images?

Hmm, well, that solves that mystery. When I look at the 4 images, they seem pretty similar to me. I suppose that teaching the AI system to recognize what humans consider similar images is a big job.

Re: Similar images?

The four "similar" files are being sent by WeTransfer. Visually, I think they are all similar, the same original just scanned four different times. My PSU sees three different files. Only two are similar.

Re: Similar images?

If similar is because the meta data is different, then that is not very useful if I need to find photos that were scanned multiple times by accident. Did a small test to simulate a typical situation. No metadata was applied beyond what gets automatically created by the scanner. Why are they not simi...

Re: Similar images?

Just in case, I selected all images (3615 items) and ran the command "Rebuild Selected Thumbnails" After it was finished, I saw two scans of the same photo in different folders. Because the display is by date order, these two happened to be side by side. Selecting one, I right clicked, "Show more .....

Similar images?

When scanning new images, it sometimes happens that the same image comes from two or more sources and so gets scanned multiple times. When I highlight a suspect and then right click "Show more ..." and then select "Similar Images" I expect to see them all. Having selected an image I know to be in du...

Re: How do I consolidate folders with same name?

If the same PSU folders contain different images, what is the situation in the physical folder - what shows in Explorer? Two of the E drives show different id codes in your image. Are they different drives that have similar folders? Since PSU doesn't import the images but works with them in their or...

Re: Dealing With Time

I too have been scanning a large number of older physical images. For those where a date is known or guessed, I prefix the file name wit the date info as described in the above link. Then when I run the script, the date is properly assigned tot he image. Really saves a lot of time that would be need...

searching in Descriptions

I can export the Descriptions in a CSV file and then search in that but can it be done inside PSU?
In the Dynamic Search, I see Description is limited to Headline and Description Writer. Is Description a field too far?

Re: changing dates in bulk

I've been using the script to enter dates from the names of scanned images with great success. Normally when the is a date or partial date and it works fine. 1968-04-02 something else.tiff 1968 something else.tiff If there is no date, the file is skipped. something else.tiff But if there is no date ...

Re: Not Responding

Well I sliced and diced but rebuilding the thumbnails worked just fine. I suppose the rebuild is exactly the same process as the first building of the thumbnails. It would seem that the thumbnail stall was just a casualty of something else that was causing the not responding. As a further test, I de...

Re: Not Responding

I'm now at version 3625 and still get the not responding issue. I searched for missing folders and files at the top level and found 205 new files. All seemed to work fine until the Building Thumbnails started. It got to 80.9% and has been stuck there for over half an hour. Other programs can see and...

Re: how do you store your images?

I thought of using decades and centuries but that still presupposes I know more about the dates than a wild guess. At this point I'm leaning towards a modified album set type of storage. While many are from identifiable albums, a lot are in photo envelopes while many are in various bundles with no i...

how do you store your images?

Up til now, all images I have in PSU were made by me so the date of the image is known: year-month-day. And that is how I've been storing them on my hard-drive in folders in a year / month / day hierarchy. With a known date, labels help classify the images by people, location, event, etc. Now I've b...
