    I pay for 50 gigs of iCloud storage, and I'm close to my limit. I can upgrade to the 200 gig amount, but before I do, any tips to clean up my Photos library? I have plenty of duplicates, or screenshots that I could get rid of, but doing it manually would take forever. Tips?

    I've used PowerPhotos to clear out duplicates, with great success.

    I always am old school...... I don't mind de-duper, to clean out photos, but manual is always better foe me, because no de-duper ever gets it perfect. and if its gonna present u a list to choose which photos to delete,, well, you can go through search with spotlight and go through all files do that yourself....

    Although they help, the only user who really needs them in the first place is the users that let it get that way.

    If you wanna use de-duper, use it once, and keep it clean.... Don't rely on it.
