Search with external photos
In this mode, Excire Foto searches for similar photos based on a photo that was not imported.
The corresponding user dialog can be called up in the menu at the top of the screen under Find → Find similar photos with external photo.
In the dialog you can either enter the URL address of an external sample photo, or simply select a photo from your local hard drive or another external device, such as a USB stick, memory card or similar.
