The only real negative with digital photography is the number of useless duplicates that we keep shoving into iPhoto with every new sync. If you’re at all like most Mac users, then you know the problem. Duplicate photos. Blurry photos that should be deleted but are left alone because, well, you know– deleting photos is work.
Add PhotoSweeper to your Mac and reduce the similar or duplicate photos in iPhoto with just a few clicks. I think of this as my photo de-clutter app because it finds duplicates, similar photos, and even photos which have been edited by other Mac apps. It even works in Aperture or Lightroom.
The interface is simple and there’s virtually no learning curve, but enough useful features to help you reduce your iPhoto library size by removing photos that are duplicates or similar to others you want to keep.
PhotoSweeper uses multiple methods to find similar or duplicates and gives you quick and easy options when it finds photos that need to be removed.
Results can be viewed in two modes– Face-to-face and Groups. Duplicates or similar photos can be deleted, moved, or bulk renamed. PhotoSweeper can also be used as a photo browser. Like iPhoto, it’s fast and efficient, uses drag and drop, has labels and ratings, and even gives you photo metadata details with a click.
Digital photography means more photos, and more photos means duplicates and similar photos which clog up iPhoto’s efficient storage. PhotoSweeper gets plenty of four and five star reviews for good reason.
