I came across this: Is there a free visual similarity image local hard drive search?. However, it doesn't answer the question and the solutions don't work.

Basically, I have a directory structure of images and I have to find all images, of varying sizes, etc, that contain this source image. In the end, we need a list of all images that contain this source image.

Is something available for use on a local hard drive?

Duplifinder looks like it does what you need. Just select the root folder as the one you want to search, and search all subfolders. It will give you a percentage as to how related they are, handles different formats, resolutions, etc.

You might also want to try SimilarImages and VisiPics. That last one might be the best of the lot.

Thanks, but I just tried it out and it didn't work. It found no duplicate images. –  Ryan Peters Aug 22 '11 at 16:16
    
Did it find any files at all? –  soandos Aug 22 '11 at 16:17

The source code is available (see here), just compile it yourself. –  soandos Aug 22 '11 at 17:11

I think this is what you are looking for: http://www.duplicate-finder.com/photo.html. It locates same or similar images on your hard drive and it's free.
