Dup Detector freeware version 3.201 (no registration code needed)

Dup Detector finds duplicate and near duplicate images by opening and reading image pixel data. Large collections and large image file sizes can slow Dup Detector but it works well running in the background. Large image collections often are filled with duplicate images under different names. Use Dup Detector to clean them.
DupDetector reads 9 image file types from a folder or its subfolders or from an image list.

Version 3.201 has many improvements including automatic and semi-auto delete modes, shortcut keys for scrolling through matching image pairs, and more precision in the matching algorithm.

Dup Detector version 3.201 2/5/05
Win 95-98 Me XP 2K or NT4 (with install/uninstall).

RotateJPG - (Version 1.1 11/29/03) For those digital camera users, not using XP, who need a simple quick method of rotating the images taken with the camera rotated 90 degrees. Just view the JPG files as thumbnails in a view of the folder content. Select one or more JPGs to rotate then right-click to bring up a context menu with the option 'Rotate JPGs + 90' and/or 'Rotate JPGs -90'. They are losslessly rotated without changing or even reading the pixel data. A simple but very handy utility for those who switch between landscape and portrait orientation when taking digital pictures. Full install/uninstall. To be of use your Windows operating system must be able to display files as thumbnails (Windows 95 without IE does not). Context menu will include the 'Rotate JPGs' option only when JPG files are selected. This is similiar to what XP does through its shell, though it can rotate any image it can display and does not do JPGs losslessly. There would be no reason to use this with XP unless you simply must have a lossless rotation.

A utility program for the 'power user'. Bring up two side-by-side explorer views from a right mouse click on any folder or drive. Two Explorers option is added to a folder context menu (right click).

A simple utility program for the 'power user'. This program does a recursive search of a drive or folder tabulating information on files with the user selected file extensions. I use this to tabulate info on image files but it could be used for any file types (extensions).
