Select your preferences on which photos to keep

Step 3 - Review the results and select which photos you wish to keep...

Duplicate Sweeper will display all of the duplicate pictures and image files that it has found in the folders you selected for the search. It will also show you a summary of the duplicate file types it has found, simply click on the "Pictures" result to display only duplicate image file types. The summary is ordered by total file size - allowing you to see how much disk space your duplicate photos are taking up at a glance.

Each individual duplicate set of images shows how many times the file is duplicated and how many of these you have selected to remove. The image file "New Building.jpg" has been found twice, as shown in the example below, and one of these photos has been selected to be deleted (shown in red).

Right-clicking on each duplicate set of an image, allows you to automatically select what "keep" criteria to use on that duplicate photo group. For example, you can select to keep the newest or oldest file from a duplicate group. As well as being able to change this selection on each duplicate image group, you can also use this universal selection on individual groups of files, whole file types, or for all duplicate groups found.

If you are unable to decide which image to keep, you can use the preview panel within Duplicate Sweeper to view each image in a duplicate group. Of course all the photos in a duplicate group should be identical!

Step 4 - Confirm and Remove your Duplicate photos

Finally, Duplicate Sweeper will display a list of all the images which you have selected to remove from your computer.

If you have finalized your choices and are happy with your removal selections, clicking the "Recycle Duplicates" button will move all the chosen photos to your Recycle Bin, so that if needs be, you can easily recover them. Note that the full version of Duplicate Sweeper is required for the software to remove the duplicates based on your preferences.
