[2.7] Batch Manager Duplicates

I have been testing this new facility and although I like the principles, some of the practice doesn't work.

Is the "Date & Time" the Creation Date of the Photo?
It seems to be the Date Posted.  I have tested loading the identical photo twice and, with the "Date & Time" checked, they are not found whereas if I only check "File Name" it finds them.

From my brief testing with identical Duplicate photos, the "width & height" option seems to work.
If I load 2 different photos with the same original name, the check checks for that.

Re: [2.7] Batch Manager Duplicates

Now that I understand that the "file name" is the original filename loaded, I see how the selection works in this regard.

This is just a suggestion:-

Would it also be possible to search for Duplicates where the Title is the same?
This coulld be another option alongside "file name" with "file name" being optional.


This leads on to my "final" suggestion:

Would it be possible to make "file name" optional so that we could search for Duplicates based purely on the  identical "date & time" to the nearest second?

This is a serious suggestion - I often load "full sized" photos under a name e.g. "IMG_1234.jpg" and also reduced size ones as "Tadjio IMG_1234.jpg"

With the new 2.7 Duplicates facility, I have no way of finding these Duplicates!

Thanks

Can these be done in 2.7.1?

Re: [2.7] Batch Manager Duplicates

As exposed in another thread already creating hashes (MD5 or other) over the binary content of an image would really make sense in addition to comparing image meta-data.

Or is it already done that way?
