Cannot get "Similar Pictures" method to work in archives

Post by vennfam » 13 Feb 2019, 17:09

I have just found & installed AllDup 4.2 under the latest version of Win 10. Excellent, but I cannot get the one feature I really want to work. That is searching RAR & ZIP archives for similar pictures. Everything else works fine. I can use Similar Pictures mode on ordinary (non-archive) folders & I can use all other comparison criteria (name, size, date) etc on archives. But similar pictures on archives - no: AllDup returns almost instantly & says no duplicates found when I am using test RARs that certainly do contain duplicates. Any ideas, please?

Please download the latest beta version of AllDup to search for similar pictures inside archive files:

Many thanks - latest beta version 4.23 does indeed scan archives for similar pictures. I find I need to set Match to 0.95 (using aHash) to avoid too many false positives, but the results are magnificent!
