Amazing - I am usually skeptical of these types of apps, especially free ones, but after reading the reviews I decided to give it a try. It was extremely easy to use and worked PERFECTLY on the very first try. It scanned 5000 photos in about 10 seconds. I was able to remove 870 photos and save 1.78GB of space in less than 5 minutes. The app does a fantastic job of showing you what is a duplicate and what will be deleted. It even uses a double confirmation sequence to make you feel at ease about deleting your precious photos. Nice job on this app guys!
Terrible! All of my events are gone; photos are in one big BRICK! - If I could give this program - and company - minus stars, I would. It stripped all of my event header information, all descriptions, and lumped all of the nearly 5,000 photos into a single event. I called the support line immediately, and after they poked around remotely in my Mac, they blamed the problem on my machine rather than their program, and proceeded to try to charge me nearly $500 for a “support contract.” I declined. He negotiated downward, finally asking me how much I would be willing to pay. My answer - zero. They caused the problem, they should have fixed it. We did not agree on terms. The Mac had no issues that should have impacted this application; this was inexcusable. When I quesioned the integrity of their software, the representative became unreaonably irate and huffy, claiming that their company produced the “best and most popular apps” in the Apple store. I never, ever received a simple apology. I’m now tasked with many, many HOURS - if not days - of very tedious work. To add insult to injury? The event header that the app lumped all of the photos into was of a favorite cat that I’d had to euthanize. I’d find another app NOT provided by Systweak; I’d recommend iPhoto Library Manager.

XXXXX WARNING!!! THIS IS A DANGEROUS APP!!! XXXXX - I downloaded this app to get rid of duplicates in my Photo Library. Well, it got rid of the duplicates, but it also deleted all the folders I had painstakingly created in Photos. I have around 6,000 travel photos I had organized into folders titled with place names and dates. This app removed all of these folders from Photos. The pictures (in bulk) are still there, but all my hard organizational work is gone, and I’m not sure that I will be able to reconstruct it. It will take a lot of work to redo the folders as best I can, but it will never be as good as it originally was. I use Time Machine and had a couple years worth of Photo Libraries backed up to an external drive, but there are no organizational data stored in any of them, only the bulk photos. So be advised, having a backup or sequential backups of your Photo Library will not preserve the folders you create. This is an issue that Apple needs to rectify. But just so you know, this app will potentially destroy all your organizational data, i.e. the folders you create in Photos. BTW, I called their tech support number and had one of their techs use Linked In to rummage around on my computer to no avail. He could not find the folders either, not on my computer and not on my backup drive. It’s devastating to find out that your handy-dandy new FREE APP has cost you plenty!! So, caveat emptor!
Really simple and impressively fast - After some sort of fiasco with iCloud making three copies of nearly half my photo album, I found this app references on a forum. It was shockingly easy to use and quickly identified thousands of duplicates in under 60 seconds. But here's the thing I really like - unlike a couple other utilities I tried, this does not edit your library directly. Instead, it creates an album with all the duplicates, and then you can delete or review them. Very clever, and less prone to errors and library corruption. I HIGHLY recommend you try this - you literally have nothing to lose since there is no path that leads to a corrupt library or inadvertently lost data.
AVOID THIS APP! - The App went through my photos and changed the dates of some so that they no longer appear grouped by date when I select “Photos” from the iphoto left-hand menu. So some of my son’s birthday pictures which should be in, say, Feb 2015 are now scattered throughout 2015 so that I can’t find them all at once under the same date. Inexplicably, the date in the photo data itself (found via get info) has been changed. The customer service (clearly a foreign-based phone bank - - I could hardly hear because of the background chatter of other operators on other phones) wanted me to allow them to link into my computer to review “whether there is something wrong with my hard drive” or the software itself. No way would I give a stranger access to my computer. Check out the reviews for the pro version - - seems like a scam they use to try to sell you “hardware improvements” once you allow them into your computer. I’d say this app is a disaster, and I’m not sure why it has 4.5 stars. Big risk. I so wish I had just lived with the duplicates and never run this.
Works as advertised - It bugs you to upgrade to a “Pro” version and it’s not the most straightforward process. But once you sit down and work through it you can delete all of your duplicate photos from iPhoto pretty quickly. Since you shouldn’t need to do this often, the inconvenience of the clunky design is worth putting up with.
SO EASY TO USE WOW - This app is great, it does what you want it to, and has some preferences too allowing you to choose priorities of which photo/video should be deleted
