Starting the duplicate finding process

To begin finding duplicate photos in your iPhoto libraries, either click the "Find Duplicates" button in the toolbar, or select "Find Duplicates" from the Library menu.This will present you with a view to set up your duplicate finding.

There are two areas you need to set up to begin your duplicate search

What to search

The Find Duplicates command can search one or more iPhoto libraries at once, looking for duplicate photos. To search a library, drag it from the library list on the left into the area labelled "Choose Libraries to Search". To remove a library, click the X next to its name.

You also have the option to exclude certain photos from being included in the search. Click the "Exclusions…" button, and you will be given the option to skip looking at photos that are either in the iPhoto trash, are marked as hidden, or already have the keyword named "duplicate" assigned to them in iPhoto.


How to compare photos

iPhoto Library Manager has two methods that you can use to compare photos to each other and determine whether they are duplicates

Once you've set up your search, click the blue "Find Duplicates" button in the upper right corner of the window, and iPhoto Library Manager will begin analyzing your libraries for duplicate photos.
