Finding Duplicate Photos
All of our digital cameras, smartphones and tablets are capable of taking extremely high-resolution images, but with all those extra pixels comes a major side effect.
Super crisp pohotos means very large files, which can easily fill up your computer if you aren’t paying attention and can lead to big problems.
Depending on how long you’ve been storing hi-res images on your computer's hard drive, it is entirely possible that you’re wasting a lot of space with lots of duplicate images.
Trying to track down duplicate pictures manually would be incredibly time consuming, so you will want to look into one of the many duplicate photo finding programs.
Since most duplicates aren't stored in the same file folder, these programs will scan your entire drive to determine how many and where your dublicates are stored.
It’s a much easier way to clean up large amounts of space on your drive from your duplicate photos.
I have links posted to a couple of free programs for both Mac and Windows users at DataDoctors.com/radio.
