I would like your opinion on this :
http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...
http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...

There are other similarities in both portfolios. Both players come from the same village as displayed on their profile page :
http://www.pixoto.com/alexandraabrunhosa
http://www.pixoto.com/ed_von_ems

Btw I found a free image duplicate finder 'Awesome duplicate Photo Finder'.
After downloading I installed it on my desktop PC and I must say that the results are indeed awesome !

Looks like a good program for home use but I don't think it could handle searching through a million or more photos on a daily basis. Great idea though.

Guislain, thanks for the link. I will download it this evening and have a look.

Yes the two first pictures you mentioned are the same. I can see this without software and

I am not sure but I think you 've got to scan from physical media and not from links.

then how do you do this? we can not save pics from other people on pixoto (which is actually very good). How do you enter the pics in the software?

I think this program only works on your local computer. It is not for searching on the internet.

Michelle, I just downloaded the program and did a test on a local computer which performed very well, but I think Andrew is right. It does not seem obvious to scan links on the internet. The software needs to access pictures that are physically stored on a computer or other media (dvd, sd cards, local network sever...).

Here is the link to the software company :

It is clearly intended to work on your local PC.

http://www.pixoto.com/alexandraabrunh... this tog so far I haven't seen any violation. except for these
http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... (composite)
http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...

the two might be doing the shots together but it won't be considered duplicates cause it was taken from two different togs

http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... ( Canon PowerShot S5 ) this photo's exif is different from
http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra... (Canon EOS 400D )

but http://www.pixoto.com/ed_von_ems
is the clear violator. he has a lot of composite images and even the reflection of his sky in the water is very different from the sky.

This is a good thing. Forward is a great direction to move. Now we need to work our way down the list above.

Most of these guys images are dupes under the guidelines - same image moments apart - all either bicycle or cart in sunset. Most leading images are just the same
