XnViewMP 0.93.1 - similar files - problem with deleted files

Post by masterjp » Wed Mar 13, 2019 6:58 pm

I used the similar files search with some testfiles and XnViewMP works good, but some small details could be better.
The function search for duplicate files will have a problem, if the user delete picture files of the search result.
Furthermore I get duplicate search results with the same picture files.
I tested it with one original file of tulips and created 2 further picture files from the original with different sizes.
The original picture file get resized to 1920x .... pixels and another file to 800 x .... pixels.

In the same directory I saved one picture with different text in the picture (e.g. Test 1, Test 2 and Test 3).
The test text is red and in the upper left corner (white cloud) of the picture.

XnViewMP found 3 groups of pictures.

The second row contain picture 1,2 and 3 of the different "tulips" pictures. (=> correct!)
In the third row you can see picture 2 and 3 of the different "tulips" pictures. (=> not required!)

If I delete picture 3 of the first tulip pictures, it will not be deleted in the third row of results!
It would be good, if XnViewMP can automatically refresh the other results in the window,
because picture 3 no longer exists!

Actually you can click on the third picture of tulips and it shows a black picture only.
