The corporate version will let you integrate our product into your existing software or service by providing you with a command line interface. We have many satisfied customers successfully using our product to extend their online and offline services.
Command-Line Parameters Usage: (Available only in Corporate Version)
DupImageFinder.exe -src_list <srclistfilename> -target_list <targetfilename> -log <logfilename> -s <similarity> -db <dbfilename> -p
-src_list <srclistfilename> - specifies a plain text file which contains image file names that you want to compare against <targetfilename> files
-target_list <targetfilename> - specifies a plain text file which contains image file names that you want to compare against <srclistfilename> files. If this parameter is ommited only the files inside <srclistfilename> will be compared against each other.
Note (new in version 22.214.171.124): if you omit -target_list parameter only -src_list files will be scanned
-log <logfilename> - specifies full path file name where the log from the comparison will be saved, e.g. c:\log.txt
-s <similarity> - specifies a similarity in percents. Example: -s 95
-db <dbfilename> - specifies the images cache file name without extention to be used or created. (see example below) ( "c:\any folder\cachefilename" )
-p - if this option is set then after scanning the project is auto-saved in the same folder as the log file
The command line parameters that are in bold are mandatory!
Information regarding errors and incorrect input can be found in the log file which is named "VSDIF_Log.txt" and generated in the "Documents" folder for the current user.
Starting from version 126.96.36.199 you could register the program using these command-line parameters:
-regname - specify your registration user name
-regcode - specify your registration code
Note: Cache files store images information gathered during the preprocessing pass (1st pass) of the scanning process. So if you often scan the same images, using cache file speeds up the preprocessing pass significantly.
You don't need to create the cache file. Just specify it as a parameter and the program will create it. If a cache file from previous scan exists the program will use it.
Example: DupImageFinder.exe -src_list "c:\src.txt" -target_list "c:\target.txt" -log "c:\log.txt" -s 95 -db "c:\cachefolder\cachename"
If you are using the FULL Corporate version you should run DupImageFinderDP.exe in order to use the command line parameters, if you are evaluating the DEMO then you should use DupImageFinder.exe as displayed in the example above.
This will find all images with similarity >= 95% and save their file names and similarity in c:\log.txt file
Note: If some of the parameters contain spaces, you must enclose them in double quotes. Example: -src_list "c:\program files\images.txt"
