The Duplicates search works album related, either within one or more albums or 
all albums. Each image is compared with each one. That can take a long time on 
all albums, so there's a progress bar and an extra start button. The 
similarity search compares the selected image against only all fingerprints, 
since the last optimization, this search also works with MySQL now in a 
fraction of a second. Before several minutes.
