Is it possible to make an application that locates a matching picture?

P: 10
I am trying to find a way to make an application that will 'scan' my current screen searching for a matching image to one that I would have registered previously. Is this possible using Visual Basic?

Any help on where to start would be greatly appreciated.

If you're talking about finding duplicate files, then you can hash the files to see if the hashes match

Sorry I know my explanation isn't great. I mean sort of a photo recognition software that may lay dormant and as soon as the image appears on my screen I am notified?

Hope that makes more sense
