    Hello,

    Can anyone please suggest a duplicate photo finder that really does work ?

    Free would be best, but a few bucks O.K. too.

    I am using Photos Cleaner, and also Duplicate File Folder, but they "miss" too many for me.

    Thanks, appreciate any suggestions,
    B.

    I use PhotoSweeper X and Pix Compare. Both excellent once you get your settings down. They used to locate unique duplicates. Been spotting the same ones for over a year. Need just one of them.

    Hi,

    Thanks for suggestions.

    I downloaded Pix Compare, and it seems to work really well.

    Thanks again,
    Bob

    Hi again,

    Forgot to also ask:

    Is there a User Manual somewhere in the program ?

    Looked, but couldn't see any.

    Am curious in particular if you can set the
    selection "sensitivity," and any other good things to know.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    I use Gemini to find duplicate files on my Mac for two years. It really helps me a lot and I like its interface much. I will have Gemini photos on my iPhone 6SP to have a try as well :cool:

    "report back" with your thoughts on the app.
    I've been trying to cull manually and may end up just going that route or another.
    I have Gemini for Mac and it works there nicely.

    There are only two settings. Ignore aspect ratio: yes if you crop images. Similarity: How much editing do you do? No editing, move slider close to exact. Aggressive edits, move the other way. I believe it does its comparisons in grey scale, so color differences won't matter.

    Over the years the app has gone from quite a few settings to very few. During that period its improved its effectiveness by leaps and bounds. Its pretty much aim it and run it.
