Mac OS Photography
Do you use Aperture on your mac for your photos and images? Do you have duplicate images sitting in your library? Enter (A)perture (D)uplicate (D)etector. It is designed to work with Aperture 3.x and will scan your library for duplicates that have accumulated over time and waste hard drive space.
ADD will never delete anything. Detected duplicates are simply tagged with keywords. They are: •ADD Unique •ADD Processed •Date Duplicate •Filename Duplicate •Hash Duplicate •Hash Original •Hash [x] Set: •ADD Similar [x]
ADD was designed from the ground up to be safe. Safe with respect to your images and the Aperture library. ADD uses only approved Apple APIs. It communicates directly with Aperture in order to get its job done; guaranteeing that there will be no “funny business”. We have not reverse engineered the Aperture database in order to achieve our goals. We certainly had the option to do that; but decided it was too risky of a proposition given that the structure changes with almost every update to Aperture. The APIs on the other hand have remained stable. The bottom line is that ADD is the safest way available to remove duplicates from your library.
