  • Our new release ships with a duplicate detection handler to find duplicate images. Furthermore, visual search can now act as a filter.

    New Features

    Visual search as a filter

    With the new parameter rank.threshold search results can be filtered based on the calculated similarity score. Only images with a higher score than a given threshold will be returned. 

    Up to now, the best matching images were returned, even if there were no relevant images in the index. With rank.threshold the result can be enforced to have a minimum relevancy. This allows to reduce the number of retrieved images and enables users to use visual search like other familiar filters. 

    Duplicate detection

    pixolution flow ships with a new request handler called DuplicateHandler to detect duplicates of a given image. It acts as an easy to use facade with useful presets for detecting duplicates.

    Duplicates may differ in size, file name, file format, encoding quality or might have other modifications.

    The DuplicateHandler uses an auto-lookup mechanism to configure itself. Thus the configuration is only a one-liner. With the parameters dup.find and dup.threshold you can control which image should be checked and how sensitive the detection should be.
