Help! How do I get rid of my Duplicate Photos!
June 25th, 2018
Many of our clients’ photo collections have one common problem: DUPLICATES!!! You can rest easy, we’re here to help.
How do we get rid of these duplicates without spending days popping our eyeballs out!! Depending on whether you’re Mac or PC based, we have the right solutions for you.
Keep in mind that although these softwares save you DAYS of sifting through duplicates, it will still take HOURS of spot-checking. Like any new software, we recommend reading the instructions and conducting various tests. If you are not real tech-savvy, we recommend contacting us if you feel overwhelmed and need to purchase a photo organizing session!
For Mac Based Clients:
PhotoSweeper is an amazing software for $9.99. You can find out more info by clicking here. This software finds identical and highly similar photos, which it then marks for deletion.
I recommend to always spotcheck the photos to make sure you’re deleting the lower quality duplicates, not the original photos. It has image comparison methods with adjustable settings and a great tech support team if you ever get stuck while using the software.
For PC Based Clients:
We’ve heard great reviews for Duplicate Cleaner. For $29.99, you can download this on your PC and begin sorting through your messy digital life. You can find our more info by clicking here.
Not only can Duplicate Cleaner be used for Photos, but it can also be used for detecting duplicated files and music! This is only Windows Based, so it can’t be used on a Mac.
