How do I remove duplicate pictures in iPhoto and in folders?

I have 12000 pictures and duplicate annihilator is so slow and can only be used fopr 500 pictures. How do I remove duplicates pictures i iPhoto and in all the original folders?

What do you mean by "in all the original folders" ?
If you purchase and registers Duplicate Annihilator then the 500 photo limit is removed.

  • How do i remove duplicates pictures, original vs edited?

    How do I remove duplicate pictures, ie original vs edited?

    If space is an issue you can run a Library from an external drive.
    Make sure the drive is formatted Mac OS Extended (Journaled)
    1. Quit iPhoto
    2. Copy the iPhoto Library from your Pictures Folder to the External Disk.
    3. Hold down the option (or alt) key while launching iPhoto. From the resulting menu select 'Choose Library' and navigate to the new location. From that point on this will be the default location of your library.
    4. Test the library and when you're sure all is well, trash the one on your internal HD to free up space.

  • How do I remove duplicate photos in iphoto?

    Hi
    I seem to have duplicates within events and across events.  Is there an easy way of getting rid of them rather than identifying each duplicate and clicking on trash?

    Duplicate Annihaliator
    Or tell us how you got these and maybe there is a better solution - typically duplicates are a sympton of a problem rather than the actual problem

  • How do I remove duplicate contacts on iPhone and iCloud

    I have duplicate contacts in my icloud account.
    How do I get rid of them?

    You can delete the duplicates on icloud.com, or you can try using one of the apps that say they can identify and merge duplicate contacts.  (If you have a Mac, you can do this by opening your contacts and going to Card>Look for Duplicates.)

    My home folder is corrupted.  I created a new user account and it seems to be fine.  I'd like to transfer all my data files to my new account.  This is no problem with most applications, but I'm not sure what to do with Apps that save the data themselves.

    Go to your User's Library folder.**
    Scroll to Mail folder.
    Select the V2 > MailData folder.
    Delete any files in MailData with envelope in the name. (should be 3)

  • Removing duplicate photos in iphoto

    how do I remove duplicate photos in iphoto? easily.

    I have the most recent copy of IPLM (3.8.6) but can't find a way to mark/remove duplicates using it.
    That's not the most recent version of iPhoto Library Manager The current version is 4.0.2. I believe the ability to deal with duplicates came with v4.

  • Deleting a picture in iPhoto AND the file in the finder at once

    How can I delete a picture in iPhoto and also delete the file of that picture in the finder in one step? In iTunes the program asks the question if the real file should be deleted also.

    If you're running a Managed library then put the pic in the iPhoto trash and empty it. Note to do this you have to be viewing in an Event or Photos view, not in an album.
    If you're running a Referenced Library, you can't. When you elected not to have iPhoto manage the files on import, you also elected not to have it manage the files on deletion.
    Are you running a Managed or a Referenced Library?
    A +Managed library+, is the default setting, and iPhoto copies files into the iPhoto Library when Importing
    A +Referenced Library+ is when iPhoto is NOT copying the files into the iPhoto Library when importing because you made a change at iPhoto -> Preferences -> Advanced. In this scenario you are responsible for the File Management.

  • How do I remove duplicates in iphoto?

    How do I remove duplicates in iphoto?

    Whenever I move a photo into  an Album and the same photo already exists there, the second p;hoto is accepted without warning.
    These are not duplicates.
    Photos in Albums simply reference the pictures in the Library. A Photo can be in as many Albums as you like without using any extra disk space,a nd it can be used in an Album as many times as you like. There is no duplication involved here.
    At heart, an Album is simply an instruction to iPhoto: Show this bunch of photos together in this order.

  • 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 do i remove duplicate photos? i somehow duplicated my library.

    can ayone please tell me how to remove duplicate pictures?

    The best option in that case is to restore your iPhoto library from your backup.
    If your backup is not current it will be a lot of work and a risky operation, even with tools like iPhoto library Manager or Duplicate Annihilator.
    Before you start deleting duplicates make a backup copy of the current state, so you have a fall back option in case you delete accidentally too much.

  • I have more than one photo backup on my computer now itunes has downloaded three of each photo. How do I remove duplicates

    I have more than one photo backup on my computer now itunes has downloaded three of each photo. How do I remove duplicates?

    Wich version of iPhoto do you have? You need iPhoto '09 or '11 to order prints.
    Make an album of all photos you want to order in the same order.
    Then select all photos at once, when you use Share > order prints.
    You should see a panel like this, where you can mark the quantities. The screenshot is from iPhoto 9.6:

    how can i delete duplicates photos in iPhoto without doing it one by one? Thx

    These applications will identify and help remove duplicate photos from an iPhoto Library:
    iPhoto Library Manager - $29.95
    Duplicate Annihilator - $7.95 - only app able to detect duplicate thumbnail files or faces files when an iPhoto 8 or earlier library has been imported into another.
    PhotoSweeper - $9.95 - This app can search by comparing the image's bitmaps or histograms thus finding duplicates with different file names and dates.
    DeCloner - $19.95 - can find duplicates in iPhoto Libraries or in folders on the HD.
    DupliFinder - $7 - shows which events the photos are in.
    iPhoto AppleScript to Remove Duplicates - Free
    PhotoDedupo - $4.99 (App Store) -  this app has a "similar" search feature which is like PhotoSweeper's bitmap comparison.  It found all duplicates
    Duplicate Cleaner for iPhoto - free - was able to recognize the duplicated HDR and normal files from an iPhone shooting in HDR
    Some users have reported that PhotoSweeper did the best in finding all of the dups in their library: iphoto has duplicated many photos, how...: Apple Support Communities.
    If you have an iPhone and have it set to keep the normal photo when shooting HDR photos the two image files that are created will be duplicates in a manner of speaking (same image) but the only duplicate finder app that detected the iPhone HDR and normal photos as being duplicates was PhotoSweeper.  None of the other apps detected those two files as being duplicates as they look for file name as well as other attributes and the two files from the iPhone have different file names.
    iPLM, however, is the best all around iPhoto utility as it can do so much more than just find duplicates.  IMO it's a must have tool if using iPhoto.

  • How do you remove duplicate images from your all images file on your mac desktop

    How do you remove duplicate images from your all images file on your mac desktop?

    Don't under any circumstances.
    All images is not a file. It's not a place. It's a list. Specifically, it's the result of an instruction: List all the images on my machine.
    When you delete something from All Images, then you have no idea what you're removing from where - files that are part of word processing docs, interface elements, corrupting your iPhoto Library. There are many perfectly legitimate reasons why you might have what appears to be duplicates but are not.
    Rule number One: Never delete anything on your machine whose job you don't understand.
