Looking for really good duplicate image finder

    I seached this forum on keywords associated with my topic and no hits.
    Perhaps there are more appropriate sources of recommendations, and if so
    inform me.

    I have downloaded a few trial/evaluation versions of utilities that search
    for duplicate images; JPGs .
    Some claim that they will find visually similar images in addition to those
    that are binarily identical.

    I have tried to use Running Man Software's DIF, and some others. I don't
    mind paying a reasonable price for a good tool. I have not found one that
    has a really good interface and functionality that suits me.

    Where should I be looking?

    How many images do you have in your database?

    I would be interested in some of the products you've tested.
    I've got a rather large set of images ~20K or so. I'm retired and have
    time to play with some of the utilities.

    I've been using DupDetector for years and have had some good success
    with it. It can be found at;

    http://www.321download.com/LastFreeware/page18.html

    It is no longer under development but I haven't needed any more than it
    does.
