Do you use iPhoto on your mac for your photos and images? Do you have duplicate images sitting in your library? Enter ADD For iPhoto. It is designed to work with iPhoto '11 (version 9.3) and will scan your library for duplicates that have accumulated over time and waste hard drive space.
But why did I really do this version? My Dad. I was telling him about ADD and he was interested in using it for himself. However, he is an iPhoto user and did not want to switch over to Aperture. So I started to work. This is the result.
ADD for iPhoto will never delete anything with its default settings. Detected duplicates are simply tagged with keywords. They are: •ADD Unique•ADD Processed•Date Duplicate•Filename Duplicate•Hash Duplicate•Hash Original•Hash [x] Set: •ADD Similar [x]
√ Full Library Scanning
√ Scan a selection of images
√ Finds absolute duplicates and potential duplicates.
√ Find visually similar images with Auto-ImageIQ
√ ImageIQ a selection of images to find visually similar pictures.
√ Many Advanced Options
√ Ultimate in safety. ADD For iPhoto only uses iPhoto APIs to do its job.
√ Get organized!
√ Save space.
√ Speed up iPhoto.
It certainly makes the chore of de-duping easier.
Basic usage guidelines are available here.
There is also a tutorial on what to do once ADD for iPhoto has finished its job.
