Do you use iPhoto on your mac for your photos and images? Do you have duplicate images sitting in your library? Enter ADD For iPhoto. It is designed to work with iPhoto '11 (version 9.3) and will scan your library for duplicates that have accumulated over time and waste hard drive space.

Step 1: Ensure iPhoto and ADD For iPhoto are running.
Step 2: Start a scan. Your options are:
▪Scan Library - Does a full scan of all images in your library and performs ImageIQ on potential duplicates.
▪Scan Selection - Within iPhoto, select the images you wish to have processed. ADD will scan only the selected images and perform ImageIQ on potential duplicates.
▪ImageIQ Selection - Finds visually similar images in the images you have selected in iPhoto.

ADD for iPhoto will never delete anything. Detected duplicates are simply tagged with keywords. They are: •ADD Unique•ADD Processed•Date Duplicate•Filename Duplicate•Hash Duplicate•Hash Original•Hash [x] Set:[] •ADD Similar [x]

There is an Auto-Reject option in preferences that will declare an original and put the remaining Hash Duplicates in iPhoto's Trash. You can review the rejected images and empty the Trash when satisfied.

When processing is complete, check your keywords for Hash Duplicate, Date Duplicate, or Filename Duplicate. . . . If you've used ImageIQ look for "ADD Similar 0" through to "ADD Similar 8".

It certainly makes the chore of de-duping easier.

In order to use ADD for iPhoto, you will need to add a few keywords.

This can be done manually, or by importing a simple image file into your iPhoto library. The file is available from Keywords.jpg
ADD For iPhoto REQUIRES iPhoto '11 (Version 9.0 or greater).
