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 do you remove duplicates in iPhoto

    I just upgraded from the original Mac mini to the new one, when moving my photo library it appears to have included all the photos i have deleated in the past. I not have multiples of most photos. Is there a way such as in iTunes where it selects only the duplicates so I do not have to scan my whole library.

    How did you "move" the liberary
    The correct way is Connect the two Macs together (network, firewire target mode, etc)  or use an external hard drive formed Mac OS extended (journaled) and drag the iPhoto library intact as a single entity from the old Mac to the pictures folder of the new Mac - launch iPhoto on the new mac and it will open the library and convert it as needed and you will be ready move forward.
    If you still have to original library trash the bad one and move it as above - there will be no duplicates
    Remember never import an iPhoto library into another iPhoto library - it does not work and creates a terrible mess

    How do I remove duplicates in Iphoto?

    I'm going to use this thread to ask a slightly related question, if that's ok..
    I'm  trying to get rid of duplicate IPhoto libraries (on various external hard drives). 
    I opened the one I want to keep , and then looked (in Finder) at each of the other libraries and dragged any photos or folders that seemed not to be in the Iphoto library I'm keeping, INTO that library . 
    I then moved into the TRASH all of those extra Iphoto libraries.   I did not yet empty the trash, because  my fear is that Iphoto doesn't actually have those photos there, and that once I empty trash, those photos will be gone.  
    I'm sure i'm confusing things I've read about the risks of incorrectly deleting photos, so I just want some reassurance that what I did will work out and I won't find that the photos were deleted when I deleted the iphoto library I dragged them from.

  • 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 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.

  • How do I remove duplicate photos on my iMac

    HOw can I remove duplicate photos I seem to have done something wrong and have 5 duplicates of everything

    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.

  • 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 songs on my ipod and in my library

    how do i remove duplicate songs on my ipod and in my library

    Apple's official advice on duplicates is here: 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 such as lost ratings and playlist membership, or that sometimes the same file can be represented by multiple entries in the library and that deleting one and recycling the file will break the other.
    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, this post for detailed instructions, 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.)
    The most recent version of the script can tidy dead links as long as there is at least one live duplicate to merge stats and playlist membership to and should cope sensibly when the same file has been added via multiple paths.
    Fix the library, then syncing should fix the device.

    How do I remove duplicates songs inside of iTunes 11?

    Two Windows scripts to make playlists of Duplicates and Exact Duplicates. Use shift-delete to remove selected tracks from the library as well as the playlist.
    There is also my DeDuper script if you don't want to do it by hand. Please take note of the warning to backup your library before deduping. See this thread for background.

  • How does one remove duplicate versions of the same songs on an iPhone5?

    How does one remove duplicate versions of the same songs on an iPhone5?

    Yes, I use Live Bookmarks.
    This is the RSS
    Each of those entries at the RSS site show up in my Firefox RSS folder twice. The content of each entry when I go to it is exactly the same. It's not that one is the reply to the original post or anything like that. For instance, see the attached image of the list of items that show up. The highlighted yellow on top is an example. Both of those links display exactly the same original post and replies. Why is that? Is is possible that somehow I'm subscribed twice? Does that make sense? How can I delete the duplicates, or for that matter, clear all those items that show on the list? I just want to see the new ones. Thanks.
