About

WellCompareDir was created to sort thousands of product images for Fröer.nu in from several folders. These product images are delivered by the product suppliers in different formats and qualities each year. Replacing one image with the most recent version did not always mean an improvement, and simply relying on file size or image dimensions did not help all of the time. Manual selection was the answer, and a specific tool to achieve this seemed like the most effective way.
