After you've made the desired selection in the Getting Started dialog, Duplicate Photo Finder starts the search in the given location.
Found duplicates immediately appear in the search results area and you can begin to work with them without interrupting the search running on the background.
In the Search results list, click the result of your choice. The selected original and duplicate photos pair is displayed in the preview area. A short information about the date photo taken, its file size and pixels dimension are located under an image preview.
Move the mouse pointer over an original or duplicate photo preview to see a detailed information about the image.
Search results list contains three columns: original file pathname, duplicate file pathname and "similarity" level. By selecting a single result you can preview the photos in the Preview area. Click the name of the column in the list to order the results by this parameter.
All operations are performed with "Duplicate" photos only (they are located to the right in the preview area and in the results list), "Original" ones (located to the left) remain intact. Please use "swap" operation (see above) to change original and duplicate in the selected pair.
