Tool for image diffs.

Project Description

Image Differ is a tool for image comparison. It loads 2 images (either local files or from the internet) and generates the diff image that shows where the images are different. It also calculates:

  • Percentage of pixels where the images differ (with adjustable threshold for difference)
  • Mean Square Error for the images
  • Structural Similarity Index

It can also calculate comparison stats for individual color channels or convert images to grayscale.

Image Differ can be used as a library for other projects or it provides GUI application.
