  • Is there a way to detect duplicate photos in my iphoto

    I have about 15, 000 photos in my iphoto library and i am sure I have duplicate photos.  Is there anyway to find out how to detect the duplicate and then get rid of them out of my library?

  • Is there a way to remove many photos from the iPhone camera roll with out having to delete photos one by one?  I need space, it's so full and I've opted out of deleting them when I sync them to my computer in the past.

    Since I've transfered all my photos to my computer & added the files that I'd like on my phone in iTunes I'd like to delete the photos from my camera roll on my phone, but there are a lot and I'd like to be able to do it quickly.  Is it possible to do this with out having to put each on into the trash on my phone?

    *correction*
    Arrow in bottom left allows you to multi select. After you choose your photos, you can hit the delete button that appears in the bottom right hand corner. Or, you can hit the cancel button in the rop right and not delete them

  • Is there a way to erase duplicate photos in iPhoto?

    Is there a way to delete duplicate photos in I photo in bulk?

    As long as you're seeing the duplicates via the iPhoto window and not the Finder 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 the library.
    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 there are only twp apps that detected the iPhone HDR and normal photos as being duplicates:  PhotoSweeper and Duplicate Cleaner for iPhoto.  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.

  • HT2477 How do I select multiple images without clicking on each one? Is there a way to select duplicate photos to delete them?

    How do I select multiple images without clicking on each one? Is there a way to select duplicate photos to delete them?

    Consider adding the delete symbol to the Finder window tool bar.  This way you can highlight all the photos you want to delete at the same time then hit the "delete" symbol.
    Open a Finder window/View/Customize Toolbar - follow the directions in the customized pop down window.

  • Is there a way to delete duplicate photos in iPhoto? I have approx 10,000 duplicates?

    Is there a way to delete duplicate photos in iPhoto without having to delete them individually?

    The real question is how this happened - iPhoto is very good about avoiding duplicates and since you have a very large number it must be the result of a user error
    Why do you think you have 10,000 duplicates? How many photos total do you have?  Just making a guess I suyspect that sometime you moved to a new system and imported your old library into the new library - Hint - NEVER import an iPhoto library into another Photo library - it does not work and creates a massive mess.  If you  did import an iPhoto library into your current library the best solution (assuming teh old library is still available) is to drag the bad library to the desktop (if you have space to continue it is best to delete it later after everything is done and tested) and Connect the two Macs together (network, firewire target mode, etc)  or use an external hard drive formatted 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.
    Even if you eliminate "duplicates" - in the suggested case they are not duplicates but different versions and at best you lose all edits and non-destructive editig done and are starting with original photos - not really good

  • Is there any way to get my photos FROM my iPod Touch back onto a new hard drive?

    My Mac crashed last Friday. First timeIs there any way to get my photos FROM my iPod Touch back into my new hard drive. The iTunes sync only goes one way from the computer to the iPod.
    It syncs the photos taken with the iPod (really an old iPhone 3G without phone service) but not the folders which I synced from the old hard drive to the iPod over the past year.

    thank you for the tip.
    Yes, my computer was backed up. for reasons way too complicated to go into here, these particular folders were not part of the backup.
    Thanks again for the help.

  • Is there a way to remove an app from the list of previously installed apps?

    Is there a way to remove an app from the list of previously installed app?
    The list that comes up when you click on the Purchased icon when updating apps.
    The list is becoming quite large after I installed and tried out a few apps.

    nvm. I found it.

  • I would like to know, on the ringtone page, where you can select songs out of your music library, is there a way to remove a song from the list after its selected? I would thin there would be a way to "delete" the songs from the list. (Clock app)

    I would like to know, on the ringtone page, where you can select songs out of your music library, is there a way to remove a song from the list after its selected? I would thin there would be a way to "delete" the songs from the list. (Clock app)
    Let me explain:
    In the clock app for ios 6.0.2 I am a little confused. It allows you to go into your music library, and create a ringtone using any songs you choose. However, I cannot find a way to remove a song from this list, just like I cannot delete one of the preset ringtones (which I'm not trying to do, but just as an example)
    Thanks for your time! If you need more information just ask.
    (I believe both my iPod and iTunes are up to date)

    I believe you just are able to delete them from iTunes.
    Hope it will be helpful

  • Is there any way to remove the duration from the course outline in Presenter 8?

    Is there any way to remove the duration from the course outline in Presenter 8? I would prefer to not have that listed if at all posible and can't find a solution.

    Are you talking about the Time Remaining display on the side bar? The text for that field is in the Modify Text Labels... tool in the Theme Editor of Presenter. You can change it to whatever you want, but you may want to keep a record of what the default text labels are, as there is no restore to default option. The Elapsed Time field is what you would want to change. I have seen this modified to show no text, copyright information or other general info.

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

    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.
    Simon

  • Hello, is there a way for making a photo transparent with iPhoto are another software?

    Hello, is there a way for making a photo transparent with iPhoto are another software?

    Not with iPhoto, but different apps have different capabilities.
    There are a couple of considerations: How is this transparent image to be used? In a Deskop Publishing environment something like Pages' Instant Alpha might be useful. Or if you're trying to overlay one image on another on a photograph then some editor that supports layers would be required.
    Further, Jpegs as a format doesn't support transparency so you'll need to work ina  file format that does.
    But if you can explain what you're hoping to do we might be able to point you in a more useful direction.
    In order of price here are some suggestions for editors:
    Seashore (free)
    The Gimp (free)
    Graphic Coverter ($45 approx)
    Acorn ($50 approx)
    Pixelmator ($50 approx)
    Photoshop Elements ($75 approx)
    There are many, many other options. Search on MacUpdate or the App Store.
    You can set Photoshop (or any image editor) as an external editor in iPhoto. (Preferences -> General -> Edit Photo: Choose from the Drop Down Menu.) This way, when you double click a pic to edit in iPhoto it will open automatically in Photoshop or your Image Editor, and when you save it it's sent back to iPhoto automatically. This is the only way that edits made in another application will be displayed in iPhoto.
