I've used 2 such programs, both free.

Dupe Detector 3.2.1--this is strictly for images and pretty simple. You let it scan your folders to build a database and then let it run through them to find those that are similar. You can control how much similarity is required to generate a possible matching pair. It shows you each pair, side by side, so you can eyeball them and decide which to delete--if any. I use a setting of 97% similarity, which works well. It might take 10 minutes to an hour to build the database, depending on how many pix you have. I have about 20,000 and run the program every couple of years and always find a few dozen to a hundred or more that are dupes. This program will also show you the dimensions of each pic in pixels as well as the size in bytes.

Fast Duplicate File Finder: this is more complicated and not just for images, so you probably wouldn't want it--but it works OK if you have any reason to find non-image duplicates.

I don't have a link for either, but Google should run them down for you. There are no doubt others that work pretty well.
