I know the thread is quite old but still unanswered properly. If any one reading this thread still wanted to know how to find and remove identical images then no need to waste your time in doing it manually. You can delete duplicate photos in iPhone with duplicate photos fixer. I installed it from play store and you can find it here http://duplicatephotosfixer.com/Photofixer.aspx

If the mac has altered the filename to account for the duplication then you cant , ie , field of cows and field of cows1 is the same photo but a different file name , the mac sees two files , you see two of the same photo,Sorry , May be its a good thing. now you can go through all those photos and remember the days.

alternately , try using search function looking for filenames with the duplicate extension number , ie , search/jpeg/filename/1

When I import from the camera to iphoto, duplicates of every picture import


I have the same problem!!! Every single time I import from my Nikon D90 I get duplicates of each photo on Iphoto. It never happened in 4 years, just recently does happen. Is it a setting from camera or from Iphoto? How to avoid this, without having to create separate folders on desktop as mentioned above. I just want to plug the USB and download on Iphoto without doing anything else. It gets frustrating as I usually download thousands of photos each month.

Slow MAC osx


There are many reasons of slow Mac. Due to system caches duplicate files, system junks, universal binaries, language files presents in your Mac and makes it slow. Everybody should optimize Mac OS X. I prefer Stellar Drive ToolBox - a third party tool to keep my Mac in tip top shape.

When i click iPhoto it gives me a screen with a symbol going around and around and won't show me any photos


Sounds like you iphoto library is either corrupted or is not well, what I would suggest that you download iphoto library manager from http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/ there is a free download which may be able to resurrect your library the cost of the full package is $19.95 and it is well worth buying particularly if you have a large iphoto library. Hope this helps.

I want to download photographs from my iphone?


Plug in your iPhone to your computer, if it's a PC you will need to use the Photo Import Wizard and if it's a Mac you will need to open iPhoto.

I use a mac. Have all pictures stored on iphone and would love to know how to get the photos to my photo frame. Not sure how to get pictures from iphoto to a memory card or whatever it is I need to do.


Use iPhoto to get the images off your iPhone and onto your Mac, then export you selected images to a media format the photo frame support.
Now without knowing the requirements of the photo frame but going to guess it accepts and USB thumb drive. Once you have imported your images into iPhoto from your iPhone, plug in the USB thumb drive to your Mac. In iPhoto, select the images you wish to move to your photo frame ( either select an album or individual images). Then go to the File Menu and pull down to Export and save the images to your Thumb drive. For best results for image quality on the photo frame you will want to match the export size with the native resolution of the photo frame.

My iphoto icon on deck has a ciricle with a line though it which means no. I can not open iphoto. it states it could be damaged .


Hi there, there is a easy fix to this problem. What you are first wanting to do is to make a backup of your iPhoto library. The default place is User(Your Home Folder) / Pictures/ iPhoto Library. What you are going to want to do is right click the iPhoto library and select duplicate. Then just click and drag that new iPhoto library you just made to the desktop. Now what you want to do is to install iLife again. Just insert the iLife disk and follow the on screen instructions. Once that is done you should be able to open iPhoto again. If for some reason when you open iPhoto and your photos are not there, then close iPhoto and you want to place the new iPhoto Library that we put on the desktop into U ser(Your Home Folder) / Pictures/ Now drop the iPhoto Library and make sure that it is called iPhoto Library and not iPhoto Library Duplicate, if that is the case then right click the file name and click get info, then just rename it iPhoto Library. Now you are done, open iPhoto and you should have all your photos again.
If for some reason this still does not work, then once again close iPhoto, this time we are going to open it agin but while we open it we are going to hold the option key down too. A menu should pop-up asking you what library you would like to use, all you want to do is select the one that says is located in User(Your Home Folder) / Pictures/ iPhoto Library.

I hope this helps you, Justin

Importing photos into I Photo


Sounds like the photos are imported based on creation date. Changing the file name will not change the order in which they are added. iPhoto looks at the files as if you were developing film. The pictures load in the order they were taken (created)
I do not belive there is a way around this unless you can somehow change the creation date before you import.

If your computer has a SD card reader, you might be better off putting your memory card into your computer and just copying the data.

Have you made sure your iPhoto is up to date? Perhaps a new update caused this problem.. Maybe you should try an older version of the software. Also, you might want to try other software. (I think you are on a mac?), you might want to try the software that came with the camera, if it works on your computer.
