Hi, I'm in need of a free software that can detect duplicate image files on my 64bit Windows 7 computer? I want to free lots of wasted space, I already know that doing this myself will take forever to sort.

I looked at Visipics because of a Lifehacker recommendation, but for some reason.. their download page says that "VisiPics works fairly on 64bit versions of Windows, but you might encounter problems. " Hmm.. I wish I knew what that meant.

Does anyone have any suggestions, or have tried any of these duplicate finders? I'm in need of a good one.

Two such applications are mentioned here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic184283.html

Check out Tineye.com
Upload an image, insert a URL or add it to your right click context menu (for firefox / Chrome) to do a reverse image search easily!
I personally love this thing, and i have it in my firefox context menu and use it often to find the source of an image, related images or a bigger / smaller version of the image

To Bleeping Animinion, the post you refer to is at least three years old . Based on recent experience i would never trust outdate url's. Example CNET where I have had problems in the recent past whereas in previous times they were very reliable.

Your concern regarding the age of the link I pointed to may be valid for unknown links in 'the wild'. However, I know the specific topic and I know the links are still valid and safe. I also know the quality of the members who posted and safety of the links within the topic I linked to. So while the linked topic may be ancient in computer years the information within is just as valid as the day it was posted.
