Searching for similar pictures

Options in the Search menu

Using the Search menu, you can search for similar pictures:

Find similar / Find duplicates: FotoStation can search for images similar to the image selected. To do so, it has to analyze all images in the folder to create a “profile” of the image data. This can be a very time-consuming process, so we advise you to use this function selectively.

Find same event : Finds files taken at the same event by performing an OR-search in Headline, Title/Object Name, and the first words in the Description/Caption field.

Find same job: Finds files with the same Job ID as the selected file.

Find all versions: Locates all pictures with the same Unique ID as the picture selected (copies as well as duplicates).

Find same metadata: Provides a submenu where you can search for files that contain the same text in the field you choose.
