    Hi,

    I have imported around 2000 pictures from an iPhone to the mac since the iPhone had no space anymore. I forgot to check the delete after import so I checked it and reimported them. I thought it would have asked to replace or ignore since they are already there.

    Now I have duplicates. Are there any easy way to remove them from Photos?

    Thanks!

    Can you click on last import and see them and delete from there?

    If not, there is no built in dupe finder in Photos. You will need to use a third party app like Duplicate Annihilator.

    Do you maybe have a Time Machine backup from before the import you could restore to?

    Thanks!
    No TM backup, it was done one after the other ;) I'll try the last import, then if it doesn't work, the dup anni and if nothing works, I'll do it manually!

    The apps is not free, but it works well. I used it on a friends library where he did something similar to you and it did the trick.
