I want to run Image Comparer from the command line, and send its output to a text file. Is that possible?

Command line parameters I'd like to see:
  • search image: the image I want to search for
  • library directory: the directory I want to search in
  • output file: place to write out filenames and match score of images that are similar (tab-delimited text)

Image Comparer can't be executed from the command line with parameters, sorry.
But you can use our comparison algorithm as a standalone DLL. Read more here:

You can develop your own util using this DLL or we can develop it for you, but it will cost extra

OK, that would work as well. Is there a performance loss if I use the DLL separately? I know that some image-comparison tools build meta-data indexes to speed up searching.

Also: is the dll .NET compatible?

And: I saw that you have a "crippled" version of the DLL that people can use for evaluation. Can you tell me in what ways it's crippled? Does it run at the same speed as the full version? (Performance is an important factor.)

Thanks!

There will be no perfomance loss, I think.
Several our customers uses our DLL with .NET environment.
"crippled@ versio of the DLL is running exactly as the full one, it executes entire comparison process, but additionally generates a random value and returns it. If you are able to get random values as a result, you are able to use real DLL in your project.

I advice you to contact us via Feedback form and we'll send you the "crippled" version of the DLL
