Photo Duplicate App

I have several duplicate photo apps but none of them allow you to select the duplicate photos by directory like Videux does. I love this feature it makes eliminating dups much faster, easier and secure. Does anyone one know of a Mac OS app for eliminating duplicate phots with this type of selection & rejection interface?

Hi mikejt1951, I don't know of any. There are some generic duplicate finders out there, but I don't know much about them. About 4 years ago, a friend of mine was using one on his large video library and it kept crashing - that inspired us to add duplicate detection to Videux. We've though of adding the ability to add photo files to Videux for purposes like this, but also want to avoid making the app too complicated (i.e. it says "Video" everywhere in the app, rather than "Media File", and a lot of the features are pretty video specific). I'm still on the fence about it, so interested in your thoughts. Regards, Chris

If you were to develop I'd develop it as a separate app to avoid the clutter as you stated. Might not be worth the development endeavor as I think it would be easier to add this function to an already existing Photo duplicate app.
