Using Auto-Reject in ADD For iPhoto

Tutorial Screenshots Coming Soon.

If you have a large number of "Hash Duplicates", so large that manual deletion would be extremely time consuming, you should consider the use of ADD Auto-Reject. This is an option in preferences. Keep in mind "Hash Duplicates" really means exact byte-for-byte duplicates and Auto-Reject only deals with this type of duplicate.

With this Option turned on ADD will declare an Original, and place the duplicates to iPhoto's Trash. You should also consider using the Propagate Ratings and Propagate Comments option in conjunction with Auto-Reject.

By propagating ratings and comments you preserve comments and ratings. There are a few ways to propagate this data. Have a look at the options to see what might be most appropriate for you.

Once configured you can start a scan. Once complete, ADD will tell you how many images have been rejected. For example, here ADD moved 83 images to the trash.

At this point you probably don't need ADD anymore. You can shut it down. The rest of the work you will do will be in iPhoto.

To see the images that were removed check out your "Trash" album.

That's all there is to effectively using Auto-Reject. Don't forget to empty your trash at some point. Otherwise the image files will remain on your filesystem and you will not have saved any space.
