Similarity for Mac OS X 10.6 and above. Just open image file and copy Similarity icon to Applications folder.

  • Fixed many issues found in Windows version
  • Similarity can scan on external mounted HDD and network folders

  • Sonogram analysis is working

  • Spectrogram analysis is working

  • New image preview scheme (will be extended in future and released in Windows version too)

  • All Premium functions now available (Automark, Save/Load, 'Precise' algorithm, Sonogram/Spectrogram, etc.). To register use Similarity - Register main menu, product key same as in Windows version.



  • Checking for updates working now


The following features aren't implemented yet:

  • Other decoders, current version uses only Apple CoreAudio decoder, it supports already many formats (mp3, mp4, alac, ...)

  • New column with pairs count, help to distinguish elements in big groups. By default this column is hidden.



  • Base group files shown in bold, if they opened

  • Fixed math error in the precise algorithm what lead to absolute wrong results (primary false results) in some cases. Precise algorithm now more precise.

  • Fixed issue with calculating rating in automatically mark dialog

  • Fixed issue with mass deletion, sometime can lead to crashes

  • Unified engine for Mac and PC version, most parts and algorithms are same
  • New grouping method for audio results (same as in Images)



  • All fields in Audio, Images results are sortable (except rating in audio results)
  • All audio decoders are now out of process and doesn't corrupt data in main process if they crashed or hang up. Improve Similarity stability very much.



  • New automark dialog for audio, images results



  • Open/save results for all tabs (Premium version only)
  • Audio format field added in Audio results

Similarity works on Mac OS X 10.6 and above. Just open image file and copy Similarity icon to Applications folder.
  • In this version we introduce new automark features.
  • In this version Premium features works in free without any limitations.







The following features aren't implemented yet:

  • Other decoders, current version uses only Apple CoreAudio decoder, it supports already many formats (mp3,mp4,...), we implement other decoders after changes in Windows version. All decoders will work out of main process and if they crash they doesn't corrupt and can be simply restarted.
  • Image preview doesn't implemented yet, we plan major change in preview in Windows too, it implemented sooner
  • Tag editor doesn't work yet
  • Autosave/autoload feature, this functional will changed in Windows too, we allow save and restore results in separate files

  • Images comparing algorithm, Similarity can now find duplicate pictures, images, etc



  • Introduced new grouping mechanism in Image results and real-time sorting



  • New automark field in Images, folder priority, you can select folders what more preferable for deletion



  • Added ability to skip video files, in most cases they don't needed to process (enabled by default)



  • Logarithmic scale in sonogram analysis



  • Fixed issues with sorting in Audio Results
  • Improved image comparing algorithm (in difference with Beta version)
  • Minor fixes
  • Warning! Incompatible with previous version cache, this version clears it.

Minor changes, For new features see Beta 1.7.0

  • The licensing terms has been changed.
    Now all licenses are lifetime, and limitations apply to updates only.
    Now your annual license will work with all older versions even if it expired already. It won’t work with newer versions only.
    Also an option to purchase the licensed version with lifetime subscription to updates is available to old customers only – those who purchased the program before this day.
    All old customers don’t loose anything: if they bought an annual subscription, they will be able to run all previous versions even after the subscription expires,
    while lifetime license users already has a subscription that’s not available anymore.

  • Action submenu in main menu
