    Dumb question I'm sure but, does anyone know what the "File > Consolidate" menu option does in the new Photos app? I'm too scared to press it haha.

    Consolidate in final cut brings all outside/external media into the main library. I assume it does the same here.

    Looks like it. If i select it, it says "No reference files to consolidate. The selected items are already stored in the library."

    does anyone here know how to find duplicates in the app?

    I previously used dropbox camera upload, I imported all that folder to the photos app, then after connecting my iPhone I realised that the app was asking to import some photos that have already been imported (400 +-), I clicked on import, otherwise I'll always have that and need to handpick new photos. Now I have lots of duplicates.

    Not a great start.
