Use PixCompare to search for duplicates or similar pictures in a large collection of picture files, folders or the Photos app.

PixCompare Features
- Find duplicate and similar pictures in a folder full of pictures
- Find duplicates and similar pictures in Photos (requires macOS 10.15)
- Move pictures directly to the trash folder
- Move pictures to a different folder
- Display results as groups of similar pictures or as a list of similar pairs of pictures
- Compare one picture to a folder of other pictures
- Use macOS built-in Quicklook to display pictures in full size
- Works best on photographic pictures, file formats supported: JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIF, HEIC, and most RAW files.
- Search through up to 40,000 pictures
- Display up to 5,000 results

PixCompare can match two pictures even when:
- one of them is grayscale
- they don’t have the same size / aspect ratio
- the contrast / intensity is different
- they have a different pixel-depth
- and when one of them is blurred or rotated

Display results in two different result modes:
- Grouped Mode: Result pictures are displayed in groups of similar pictures.
- List Mode: Pairs of similar pictures are displayed in a list. The list is sorted by similarity score, i.e. the most similar pairs are at the top of the list.

Absolut beeindruckend wie gut ds Programm die Bilder erkennt. Durch den Schieberegler kann man tatsächlich fast identische Bilder finden, eben nicht genau identische, sondern solche mit kleinen Änderungen. So kann man Bilder-Sammlungen sehr effizient aufräumen.
Was noch fehlt ist, dass man die gefunden Bilder mittel Drag-and-drop in vordefinierte Ordner ablegen kann, dann könnte man gleich perfekt sortieren.

Funktioniert tadellos. Schieberegler für Ähnlichkeit gegen links verschieben sonst werden zu viele ähnliche Bilder aufgelistet.
