Worth every penny

I have a first gen rMBP with a very limited 250GB SSD and it has me constantly looking to delete things and clear up memory to make room for more important thing. This app was a HUGE time saver!! Not only did I have a bunch of duplicates from the iPhoto to Photos app conversion that I didnt realize, but I had many that had somehow duplicated from my iOS devices as well. This program saved me over 15GB of storage and helped accurately spot in seconds the thousands of duplicates it would have taken me hours to find. Most duplicate finder applications just look at the file names but this one intelligently scans the images themselves. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Does more than find exact matches

This software finds the binary duplicates that you would expect, but goes on to look at your images to find duplicates based on other critera like similarity, date/time taken and so on.

Sure I had 500 or so exact duplicate files in my library, but after looking for similar images and ones that were taken at the exact same date/time - I was able to eliminate another 3000 photos!

What a great app!

Awesome App!

For the last three years I’ve been dealing with a duplicate mess in my iPhoto library. I bought Tidy up, Duplicate annihilator, tried a few free apps such as gemini, dupe guru but still no luck. I just bought this app and it did find all the photos that were duplicate and the user interface is amazing for this type of issue. Reviewing your images was super easy vs the other apps. I strongly recommend this app.
