It stores tens of thousands of photos. The entire collection can be categorized by Events and Albums, search is fast if you use keywords, it shares, exports, imports, and it even tweaks photos to improve how they look.
In the age of digital photography where it’s as easy to use 100 photos as it is ten, there’s just one problem that most of have. Duplicates. I’d like to have been paid for every time I’ve uploaded the same photos from my camera or iPhone. Duplicates abound.
Fortunately, there’s a few ways to get rid of dupes and one of them is free.
Add Duplicate Cleaner to your Mac. It’s free from the Mac App Store and it does what you think it does. It scans the iPhoto Library for duplicate photos and videos, including dupes that have been edited (which iPhoto saves).
Multiple copies of the same photos get clustered together in a group. All the duplicates can be deleted– completely removed from your Mac– with a click.
Yet, it’s a safe delete. Files are moved to the Mac’s Trash can, so you have one last chance to save a dupe if it’s not really a dupe. There are other apps that do similar removal, so check out 3 Ways To Remove Duplicate Photos In iPhoto. One Is Free, Two Are Not, All Do The Job.
