I'm looking for a software to arrange and view all my 30k pictures by similarities. Definitely I won't tag them one by one!

I was looking for something similar to visolu2 (an iPad app), or something like piximilar - but for hard drive. ImageSorter (a software made by the same people of visolu2) does the job, but I can only run it with Wine + is no longer supported. I would prefer a software for Linux. All suggestions are welcome.

ImgSeek is an open-source solution that will let you search by similarity and even sketch a basic version of the photo you're looking for.

I'm not sure that the huge display of images by dominant colour is a feature, but it should do almost everything else you need. It's also being actively developed so this feature may be added in future.

The screenshot below shows searching for similar images.

I'm aware of ImgSeek, but it doesn't display all photos as you said. Thanks anyway! – popi Sep 7 '13 at 12:15
