When using iPhoto for iOS I have noticed that it seems to create multiple versions of an image, even if you just open and view the image.

 

How can I consoldate these images into one.

    Greetings,

     

    I can't reproduce the behavior you depict above on either my iPhone 4 or my iPad 2.  You say you are just opening the image in the Photos view and it replicates or do you have to do something else like attempt to edit it?

     

    Questions:

    If you go to the Photos.app on your iPad is there still only one instance of each image?

    Are these images you synced over from your computer or are they in your camera roll?

    Did they come from photostream?

     

    Troublehshooting:

    Assuming the images aren't duplicated in the Photos.app, I'd suggest you turn your iPad off and on and delete and reinstall the iPhoto.app.

     

    If the same thing occurs after removing and reinstalling iPhoto, I would think there must be something going on in the Photos.app which is in turn causing issues in iPhoto.  Backup and restore your device: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1414

     

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Derek,

     

    If it were a bug in the software it would be happening to me too or to the vast majority of iPhoto for iOS users.  As its not, that means the issue is likely with some other item of data on your device.

     

    If you have any other apps which access the contents of the Photos.app it might be worthwhile to uninstall them temporarily in case they are interfering.  Once removed, power cycle the iPad and test again.

     

    Failing that:

    Backup and restore would be the next step: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1414

    I am having exactly the same problem. Every time I launch iPhoto for iPad I get an increasing number of duplicates. Can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Hope someone comes up with a solution.

    Seems to be that every time the iPhoto app updates from the camera roll it adds one new duplicate image to the photo area.

    I have iPhoto on an iPhone 4s. And an iPad 2 both with IOS 5.1

    Only the iPad has this duplicating problem. I have deleted iPhoto and reinstalled,still duplicates. Reset the iPad,still duplicates. It seems to happen when an album is created..also happens with existing albums. My photo list is getting larger and no way to delete photos. It is tripling some photos. Photo list is 708 photos,iPhoto show 1453 photos!
