For any level of photography enthusiasts, we may be used to taking multiple shots in a continuous, multi-angle sequence at the target in order to capture a good moment or the best shot. The problem is that we are often too lazy to clean up those duplicate photos later that should have been deleted at the very start. Over time, these duplicate photos waste more and more disk space, and are getting harder and harder to organize and tidy up – it has become a big headache to try to go back.

PhotoSweeper is a fast, accurate and efficient tool for scanning and removing duplicate and similar photos on Mac OS. It can quickly and efficiently find and delete duplicate photos and other image files from your computer (this is applicative even for a very large photo collections) by grouping photos and roundly comparing them according to different formats, sizes, file sizes, etc., so as to help us save a lot of disk space.

PhotoSweeper has an easy-to-use user interface, supports drag & drop operation, can automatically mark duplicate photos, supports custom search settings, large-size photo previewing/browsing, and is able to find similar images based on the selected images, and so on. It can directly work well with photos from Apple Photos, iPhoto, Aperture, Capture One, and Adobe Lightroom libraries, as well as photos from local hard drives and external storage devices.
