Very Useful - Thank You!

I really appreciate this utility help me sort out a large number of photos for genealogy purposes. I would like to suggest a couple of suggestions. 1) When you “clean” the photos how about depositing those photos in a folder on the desktop with the folder name - sometimes you might want to keep lesser quality photos for other purposes. 2) It is not transparent how you remove the name of the last scanned folder from the list. Thank you again.

Solid app

Great app for getting rid of duplicate photos and freeing up hard drive space. The app is quite fast but it will max out your CPU, so it is not recommended to have other apps running when this app si scanning your hard drive. Overall, a solid app that gets the job done.

Easy to use

This is a good app for beginners. It has a simple user interface and you will get the hang of it right off the bat. Regarding its efficiency in finding duplicate images I would say it is above average and scanning speed is also very good. So, yeah, my advice is you can give this app a try.
