PhotoSweeper

3.3.115 November 2018

Find, sort, and eliminate similar photos.

Overview

PhotoSweeper is a fast, precise, super-efficient tool to eliminate similar or duplicate photos even in huge photo collections. It works with photos from iPhoto, Aperture and Adobe Lightroom libraries as well as photos from your hard drives and external storages.

Features
  • Easy search of photos - Just drag and drop folders from your Mac to allow PhotoSweeper to find all photos inside. Add more photos from your iPhoto, Aperture or Lightroom library via the Media Browser window.
  • Flexible comparison settings - Powerful multi-settings to easily find duplicates, similar photos, series of shots. The app finds duplicate photos, even those edited in external programs such Photoshop, regardless of image size or format.
  • High speed and quality - PhotoSweeper was developed as a tool for extremely fast comparison of a huge number of photos. Cutting-edge technologies and unique algorithms make searching duplicates incredibly fast and gives excellent comparison results.
  • Efficiency - You can regroup the results without re-comparing photos by changing matching level with a slider. Using caches makes the next comparison much faster.
  • Marking duplicates automatically - Mark photos you want to get rid of manually, or use the "Auto Mark" feature to mark duplicates automatically based on the list of rules you can adjust to your needs in the Preferences.
  • Comfortable viewing results - PhotoSweeper provides 3 modes for reviewing results: "One by One", "Face-to-Face" - one or two large photos with an opportunity to mark a photo with just a click, "All in One" - all groups of duplicates in one list.
  • Great photo browsing - PhotoSweeper also serves as an up-to-date photo browser with a built-in search of photos by metadata, Quick Look preview, the "Info" panel with a detailed photo description, including histogram and image metadata (EXIF, IPTC etc.)

A comprehensive user manual is available on our site: http://overmacs.com/support.html

I want to share impressions from using PhotoSweeer X. Previously say that I have tried about 10 similar programs searchers photo duplicates (it is pictured). The general impression from PhotoSweeer X - very comfortable (probably the best among all similar), fast and intuitive application, with sufficiently high-quality search engine duplicate photo and comparing the series. But, it is not strange, this app is not clear (another definition) photos. At the same time applications such as: Snapselect (poor functional), Similar Imige Detector (many unnecessary comparisons photo and not too convenient control), DupHunter (this app has a very slow engine and a lot of incorrect comparison of pairs and series) - are a bunch of missed PhotoSweeer X duplicate photo! This occurs when all options Search options relevance. I do not want to say that PhotoSweeer X - is not a quality search. I want to draw the attention of developers to refine the search algorithm to PhotoSweeer X duplicates found explicit photos. Let the developers will review the work of these applications me. I called the most effective (in my opinion) the number of searchers photo duplicate applications. (I apologize for my English -one is not my native language).

working ok for finding duplicates, the user interface needs some work, for example when having done one folder and want to another one, you first have to remove all the pics from, the first folder.....annoying. What REALLY SUCKS is that this version again does not read the previous versions preferences. I do have to setup my automark rules again...Why?

Great app that does what it says. Only missing the ability to add folders to the Library Priority box in the Auto Mark preferences since I do not use Aperture, iPhoto or Adobe Lightroom. Therefore only 4 stars.

Thanks for the great idea! The next version will have "Auto Lock folders" feature, it's even better than "folder priority". Locked photos are used for comparison but can’t be marked for removal.

We've just implemented "Folder Priority" feature. It'll be in a new major version - 2.0, among with other cool features and brand new user interface. Thanks again for the idea!
