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.

    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.

  • My previous programme to remove duplicate photos from iPhoto will not work in Photos. I feel I was tricked into buying a remove duplicate app from Apple which, after purchase, indicated it is only for iPhoto. Does anyone else have this problem. Does

    Remove duplicate photos.

    There is no Apple provided duplicate remover application. You must have bought a third-party application. Which application is it?
    Photos is very new, and there are only a few apps, that have been updated to handle Photos Libraries are:
    For example, these new apps claim to work with Photos:

  • 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 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.

  • Any tips for removing duplicate photos?

    I had over 12,000 photos, with batches of photos in directory structures similar to folders like:
    /NewEvent
    /NewEvent/OriginalJPGs
    /NewEvent/ProcessedForWeb
    /NewEvent/ProcessedForPrint
    /NewEvent/ProcessedForScreenDisplay
    Now, I have multiple photos ... is there any way to easily remove duplicate photos in iPhoto?   Other Suggestions?   I'm switching from PC to Mac, and have just gotten started with iPhoto.
    Thanks,
    Richard

    Well, they are duplicates, as far as I'm concerned,  they mess up my orgami slide show by seeing the same photo plastered to the screen three times ... and they were duplicates before I imported them into iPhoto ... but yes, I processed the Nikon NEF file to a proof first image, then to a print optimized second image, then to a web browser optimized third image ... etc ... all BEFORE I imported them into iPhoto ...
    So, now, I was wondering if there was a way to delete duplicte (meaning photos that look alike) eventhough they are different sized ...
    Are you saying that if my source folders had multiple copies of the exact same file, then iPhoto would have only imported one of these files, and skipped the second?
    thanks for your help

  • How do I find duplicate photos in iPhoto

    I have so many duplicates in iPhoto that my library files is way too large by thousands of photos. I need to find a way to weed out duplicate photos. Anyone know how?
    Thanks,

    Where are you seeing these duplicates?  If you're seeing them from withing the iPhoto window then you can use one of the apps listed below.
    If you're seeing those "duplicate" files via the Finder then you don't have duplicates.  iPhoto will have a minimum of 2 files in it's lbrary for each file imported.  So don't relay on what you see via the Finder regarding duplicates in the iPhoto library.

    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 most versatile and best all around iPhoto utility to have.

  • I am not able to duplicate photos in iphoto. How can I accomplish it.

    I am not able to duplicate photos in iphoto. I have tried the two finger click and then went to duplicate... no luck. Went through photo and duplicate... no luck. Used command D... nothing. How can I fix this?

    Can you import new photo's?
    If not that means something is wrong with your iPhoto files someplace or possibly your .plist file.
    As you know, you can right click "show package contents" of the iPhoto Library and get a copy of your Originals out. I would do that immediately so you have a copy safe out of iPhoto's clutches, stick them on a external drive, along with all your other files just in case.
    Then next download and run ALL of the free OnyX initial checks, cleaning and maintenance tasks (except the log files) and reboot at the end (in between tasks reboots can be canceled)
    http://www.titanium.free.fr/
    What this will do is sort of check things out, then clean out all your caches so they rebuild, repair permissions and other tasks that the computer normally does itself, the machine may act a bit slow until the caches and Spotlight are rebuilt, sort of a nuclear cocktail of fixing everything.
    If OnyX gives any warnings then state them so here please, you could have a more serious problem that will need addressing like a Repair of your boot drive or failed SMART status etc.
    If OnyX comes up clean, and your still having trouble with iPhoto, you can choose to remove (from Pictures), rename and/or archive the iPhoto Library, reboot and restart iPhoto to create a new iPhoto Library, then in iPhoto, import a copy of your Originals from backup.
    You can also delete the  com.apple.iphoto.plist  file from your ~/Library/Preferences folder, reboot and restart iPhoto, reset your preferences again, sometimes that clears issues up.
    If your STILL having issues with iPhoto, log into another user and try iPhoto there, if no issues then it's something unexplained in the other user. You may want to just switch users transfering files via the Users/Shared folder.
    If your having problems with iPhoto in the other user, the program iPhoto ITSELF, is likely the cause. You can resintall it from the bundled 10.6 install disks, or simply install 10.6 again (does a overwrite of exisiting OS X and bundled iLife programs) and immediatly Software update until clear to 10.6.8. This method also kicks out kext and other OS X installed "hacks" from other third party program installers, you wlll need to run those installers again.
    If you upgraded 10.6 over 10.5, then you will need to use Pafacist to extract iPhoto from the 10.5 disks, as the 10.6 white disks doesn't have the free iLife, only the grey disks do.
    There are also some tricks to rebuild the iPhoto Library, I forget what they are, but if you ask in the iPhoto forum you will get a answer from several of our regulars who are familiar with the subject better than I am.

  • 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.

  • Find and remove duplicate photos

    I recently copied or imported a large number of photos from external drives to iphoto, but the process seems to have peppered many duplicates of photos throughout my collection.  Usually I iphoto asks if duplicates should be deleted, but it didn't in these instances.  Is there a way for iphoto to search and identify duplicates and then delete those extras?
