The incorporation of cameras on practically all types of devices has turned many people into obsessive shutterbugs. Every single moment has to be captured on camera – and not just the important events like weddings or birthday parties but even things you’d consider mundane like a trip to the mall, the restaurant (you can see all of the food porn proliferating all over the internet), and even the bathroom.
These photos do accumulate and before you know it, you’ve already occupied gigabytes of precious hard drive space with your thousands of photos. But, let’s face it, many of those photos are just wasting space because you’d often download duplicate photos on your computer when you back up your devices. This has become more of a problem now with the automatic uploading of images on cloud storage services. At some point it is going to become quite unwieldy and you’ll have a hard time cleaning up your hard drive.
This is where iRemoveDuplicate comes in. This is a handy app for the Mac OSX that does one thing with great efficiency – it finds all of the duplicate photos in iPhoto and removes it from your hard drive. This is a quick and fast app – just one click and iRemoveDuplicate will look for all of the duplicate photos in iPhoto. After it has done its search it will display all of the photos with duplicates. You can then tell iRemoveDuplicate to either delete the photos or tag it as duplicates (if you don’t want to delete it just yet).
This is a great app to have especially if you need to manage hundreds or thousands of photos. The app costs $4.95 but the price is worth it especially if you’re the type who accumulate a lot of photos and want to streamline your hard drive periodically.
