    Hi Everyone -

    I have recently merged my wife's iPhoto library with my iPhoto library.

    Of course, we have duplicates. However, is there a way to quickly have all duplicate pictures listed (via a smart album or something) so I can quickly start deleting the duplicates. With iTunes, there is a 'Show Duplicates' and while I understand why there isn't such a button in iPhoto I thought maybe there was still a way.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    Don't think there's anything that will automatically shuffle into a smart album for manual deletion. Consider using Duplicate Annihilator to resolve this.

    iPhoto normally detects duplicates whilst importing. Of course, this will only work if the pictures are identical (not too sure on the specifics, but I imagine that if the file names and file sizes are the same, it will flag them up as dups).

    Sorry, I realise that doesn't help you much but it's worth noting.
