I am hoping someone can offer a suggestion for removing duplicate photos in iPhoto. I have a lot of them.

I have installed Duplicate Annihilator. $7.95 for full version.

Anyone have other suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

    That is the best solution - what problem are you haveing with it?

    Yes, actually. I am having a bit of trouble.

    So I run Annihilator, and it tags my duplicates as "Duplicates".

    Then I search for "duplicates" in iPhoto and just delete those photos?

    Is there a way for me to compare the photos, or be sure they are duplicates?

    Drop an email to the makes of Duplicate Annihilator. They are very helpful and active in supporting their product.

    That can be achieved by using some iPhoto features. If you used both the *set duplicates comments* and the *set originals comments* in the Duplicate Annihilator preferences then you can easily locate the duplicates and the originals in iPhoto. There are several methods to compare those and here is one solution in three steps:

    1. Search for "original" in iPhoto, set the flag (or a keyword) on those images

    2. Create a smart album that lists images based on description and make sure that it lists both the originals and the duplicates

    3. You will now have a alum with the duplicates and the corresponding originals and the originals are a easy to identify by the flag (or keyword).
