PhotoSweeper Lite helps you to get rid of duplicate photos. It works with photos from iPhoto, Aperture and Adobe Lightroom libraries, as well as photos from your hard drives. It allows you to find photos that have identical content, regardless of name, with or without comparing metadata (such as EXIF).

DUPLICATE photos - absolutely equal photos, created by reserve copying, using multiple photo libraries, etc. If you have several Macs, external hard drives, or just multiple copies of the same photo collection, and want to remove duplicates, this application is for you.

SIMILAR photos - photos that look identical to the human eye, but different to the computer, usually created by multi-shot capturing the same scene, or by editing with special software, like Adobe Photoshop, Pixelmator, etc. PhotoSweeper Lite DOES NOT detect this kind of photos as duplicates, but the FULL version of PhotoSweeper DOES the trick.

Why PhotoSweeper Lite?
• Support for iPhoto, Aperture and Lightroom libraries.
• Beautiful and easy-to-use interface: great photo browsing, reviewing results in different modes, marking photos with just one click, etc.
• Extremely fast: based on state-of-the-art technologies and optimized for photo comparison.

This is the LITE version. The FULL version is named "PhotoSweeper" and:
• Finds SIMILAR photos providing 5 additional comparison methods. Photos are compared regardless of their sizes or formats and grouped by similarity. It allows you to find even edited photos and sequences of photo shots.
• Ability to move or copy photos you want to keep with or without bulk renaming.

A comprehensive user manual is available in the Help menu.

+ Fixes an issue that could cause the application to quit unexpectedly when comparing photos using Histogram method.
+ Fixes broken "Trash Marked" button.

Great! Easy to use.

I had over 49,000 photos on my computer. Before iCloud, everytime we got a new computer, we transferred files from the old hard drives to the new ones; I ended up with triplicates and sometimes more of some photos. This software found the duplicates easily and I was able to delete them quickly! The software did the work automatically (there is a manual option) and I am now down to around 24,000 photos! Thanks to the inexpensive software, I was able to save lots of time and aggrevation.

This is exactly what I was looking for!

This application offers what I’ve been looking in when checking my photo library. Instead of just looking looking at the name, filesize, or checksum, this app goes deeper. I have 15 rules setup to determine how files are matched and how they are marked for delition. Granted this application isn’t perfect, but if I can go through >15,000 photos and only have to spend 10 minutes double-checking the work, then hell yes this app is great!

Holy Moly… It’s Fantastic!

I have seriously spent hours and hours trying to accomplish what this app does in minutes. Even the largest library I have (over 60 GB) took less than 30 minutes to scan, detect and trash duplicates. This is probably the best money I’ve ever spent on an app! The only thing better would be to be able to scan mulitple libraries at once to detect shared duplicates. Maybe that’s possible, but I haven’t figured it out yet… Thank you for a fantastic app!
