How to Find and Remove Duplicate Images or Pictures from your PC
Most of us save Images, Pictures, Wallpapers in our PC from the Internet, CD’s, Friend’s PC or photos taken from our Digital Camera. Most of us love to have a collection of beautiful images, pictures in any format like jpeg, bmp, gif or any other extension. After some days, months and years, your hard drive will have hundreds and thousands of images. And definitely there might be duplicate ones lying around on your drives eating up your hard disk space.
I want to share a tool that i am using from last 4-5 years. With this tool, you can remove the duplicate pictures.
The tool is DupDetector, its a free ware. Click DupDetector to download it.
How to Find and Remove Duplicate Images / Pictures
- First select the method for comparing images/pictures from the method tab.
- Click on Get data tab and click on Open… button and select the folder that contains all the images that you want to compare and then click Build.. button. The building of data file takes some time, so have a cup of tea or coffee and come back.
- Click on Find dups tab and change the percentage if you want. I would recommend keep it as it is and proceed to next step.
- Click on View dups tab and Click on Find dups button , It will show up all the duplicate images that are lying on your drive. Now Simply choose one out of the two duplicate images to remove it. The removed files will be moved to recycle bin. Thats it…
In this way, i have removed a lot of duplicate images/pictures and got back hard disk space that was taken up by duplicate images.
