Duplicate Photo Finders

Just about every digital camera or smartphone is capable of taking very high resolution pictures these days, but there’s a side effect of all those extra pixels

High resolution images means large file sizes, which can start to fill up your computer if you aren’t careful and lead to big trouble!

Depending on far back you’ve been storing digital images on your computer, it’s possible that you’re taking up a bunch of unnecessary space with duplicate images.

Trying to find those duplicates manually would be an exercise in futility, so you’ll want to get some help with one of the many duplicate photo finder apps.
