- The Special Property Column "Image Hash" can be used to sort images by
similarity. An interesting feature and hard to find elsewhere. Note that
unlike the common data hashes (MD5, SHA...) the "Image Hash" has an
iconic relation to the visible image (the pixels), which means similar
images have similar hashes. The sorting is done so that the sum of all
distances from one to the next is minimal, which was an interesting
thing to code.
- Remember that scale, colors, brightness, and contrast are ignored by the
- This is still work in progress, so you should not rely on the hash to
remain stable during the next weeks (so there is no point in saving it
anywhere, not yet).
- This "Image Hash" is also what's used to find Image Dupes in Find Files.
