Hi photography community,
as a hobby photographer I organize quite a lot of photos for my family and friends. I have a lightroom library of around 90k photos that accumulated over the last 25+ years. All of them are JPG files and I organized them by:
- Renaming them to a common file name scheme IMG_YYYYMMDD_MMHHSS_Author
- Corrected date taken metadata (older pictures often had no date/time set at all or wrong clocks)
- added rating, keywords, removed duplicates, etc.
A lot of these pictures are taken by friends and family members and not my own cameras.
Now besides having this nicely organized library, I recently got a lot of RAW original files that correspond to those in my library. They are completely unorganized.
Is there a tool/software that would help me match/associate those RAW files to the organized ones? There is no way to match them using any metadata, because both filename and date taken are typically completely different. The tool would have to analyze the image content and match them based on that.
Own research already done
All I found on the internet are tools for finding duplicates based on image content, but they do not explicitly try to find 1-to-1 matches of one (RAW) folder to another (organized JPG) folder.
Thank you very much in advance for any helpful hints!
