We have 100k images from which we need to remove duplicates.

A duplicate match occurs when the images are VISUALLY the same, regardless if image format, quality setting, dimensions or small differences. Obviously we cannot use a md5-sum on the file itself, so we need something more advanced.

Our community of experts have been thoroughly vetted for their expertise and industry experience.
