When I imported photos to my iPhoto library, I checked the box not to import duplicates.  After the photos were all imported, I discovered that there were several duplicates the iPhoto imported although the box was checked to not import duplcates.

 

How can I avoid having duplicates imported?

 

I did notice that under the orignals in iPhoto only the photo number was shown but under the duplicates that were imported, the titles that had been placed before the import were shown.   Did this make the difference so that the duplicates were imported?

 

Thanks for your help and suggestions.

 

Oh yes, I did run Duplicate Annihilator after the import but it did not pick out those duplicates.

 

Thanks.

    Please explain exactly what you have done. If you have edited the photos in another program then they are different
