Very helpful. Really saved my day comparing 100s of Gb of images (one local folder and one Google Drove folder) to find images that somehow seems to be corrupted by Google Drive.
Waiting for improvements and more updates!
Such a nice program, with great features. (Especially the contextmenu i like) I wish i had known this program much earlier... would have saved me alot of time !! Thumbs up.
Very fast and easy to use as standalone or as editor's plugin.
