How can I find and remove duplicate photos in iPhoto?

What is the best way to find and remove duplicate photos in iPhoto?

Are you seeing these duplicates in iPhoto or via the Finder?  If it's in the iPhoto window then you can use one of these applications to identify and remove duplicate photos from an iPhoto Library:
iPhoto Library Manager - $29.95
Duplicate Cleaner for iPhoto - free
Duplicate Annihilator - $7.95 - only app able to detect duplicate thumbnail files or faces files when one library has been imported into another with iPhoto 8 and earlier.
PhotoSweeper - $9.95 - This app can search by comparing the image's bitmaps or histograms thus finding duplicates with different file names and dates.
I also prefer iPLM as it is more than just a dup finder.  It's a the most versatile iPhoto utility available.

    How can I find and remove duplicate photos from my computer?

    Terence,
    Yes, the duplicates appear in the iPhoto window. I have folders with same name occuring two or even three times sometimes with exactly the same set of photos (ie photos with the same ID) and sometimes with a limited set of photos. Other  folders appear only once.
    I normally take my MacBook with me if I'm shooting a lot of photos, such as on holiday, and then want to transfer them to my iMac when i get home. Other times I transfer the camera's memory stick directly to my iMac.
    I have great difficulty transferring the photos from my MacBook to my iMac. I don't want to store my photos on my iDisk due to the length of time it takes to upload them.
    Thanks again.

  • How do I find and delete duplicate photos in iPhoto?

    I have used iPhoto for many years and I have quite an extensive collection (13k+) and I am sure that I have many many duplicates. Is there a way to find and delete simply any duplicates that have consumes my library?

    That is not a feature of iPhoto - suggest to Apple - iPhoto Menu ==> provide iPhoto feedback.

  • How to find and delete duplicate photos in iPhoto

    How do I fins and delete duplicate photos in iPhoto?

    There are two apps, actually one app and one Applescript script, for finding and removing duplicate photos from iPhoto. They are:
    Duplicate Annihilator
    iPhoto AppleScript to Remove Duplicates (free)
    HOWEVER, only try the above if you are seeing the duplicates in the iPhoto window.  If you are seeing duplicate images via the Finder then you probably do not have duplicates.  That's because at a minimum iPhoto will have two separate image files of each photo, the original and the thumbnail file. If the photo is a portrait oriented photo from a camera with the auto-rotate feature there will be a 3rd, modified image file in iPhoto, the rotated version.
    So be sure where you're seeing these duplicates.

  • How can I find and eliminate duplicates in iTunes 11?

    I can't seem to find the "Find exact duplicates" item in the File Menu in version 11. How can I find and deal with duplicates?

    Shift-View-Show Exact Duplicates should reveal them. Keep one of each repeated group of files and don't send to the recycle bin unless you are sure that there are multiple files on the disc as opposed to multiple entries to the same file.
    There is also my DeDuper script if you don't want to do it by hand. This can preserve ratings, play counts, playlist membership, etc. which are lost in a manual clean up. Please take note of the warning to backup your library before deduping. See this thread for background on deduping and the script.

  • HT2905 how do i find and remove duplicate songs in itunes 11.1.3?

    i transferred my itunes to a new computer today, and somehow half of my library was duplicated. no i cant seem to find a way to get rid of the duplicates without selecting them one at a time. any ideas?

    Apple's official advice on duplicates is here... HT2905: How to find and remove duplicate items in your iTunes library. It is a manual process and the article fails to explain some of the potential pitfalls.
    Use Shift > View > Show Exact Duplicate Items to display duplicates as this is normally a more useful selection. You need to manually select all but one of each group to remove. Sorting the list by Date Added may make it easier to select the appropriate tracks, however this works best when performed immediately after the dupes have been created.  If you have multiple entries in iTunes connected to the same file on the hard drive then don't send to the recycle bin.
    Use my DeDuper script if you're not sure, don't want to do it by hand, or want to preserve ratings, play counts and playlist membership. See this thread for background and please take note of the warning to backup your library before deduping.
    (If you don't see the menu bar press ALT to show it temporarily or CTRL+B to keep it displayed)
    Alternativey see this migrate iTunes library post, you may want to revisit the transfer method.
