• You edit photos with applications, such PhotoShop, Pixelmator etc., and make backups just in case.
• You have photos scattered on external hard drives and local disks, in iPhoto, Aperture or Lightroom libraries.
• You have a mess in your photo collection or just want to free disk space by removing junk photos.


• Easy to find photos
Just drag and drop folders to allow PhotoSweeper to find all photos inside. Add more photos from your iPhoto, Aperture or Lightroom library via the multi-functional Media Browser window.

• Flexible comparison settings
Use 6 different methods to find similar or duplicate photos, even those edited in external programs such Photoshop, regardless of image size or format.

• Speed and quality
PhotoSweeper was developed to be extremely fast at comparing huge number of photos. Using cutting-edge technologies and algorithms makes searching duplicates incredibly fast and gives excellent comparison results.

• Efficiency
You can regroup the results by similarity without re-comparing photos, just by changing the matching level slider. Using caches allows you to make the next comparison much faster.

• Marking duplicates automatically
Mark photos you want to get rid of, or use the "Auto Mark" feature to mark duplicates automatically taking into account the list of rules which you can adjust to your needs in the Preferences.

• Comfortable viewing results
PhotoSweeper provides two modes for results: "Face-to-Face" - two large photos, "Groups" - all groups of duplicates in one list.

• Great photo browsing
In addition, you'll get an up-to-date photo browser with such features as: a built-in search of photos by metadata, Quick Look preview, the "Info" panel with a detailed description of the photo, including histogram and image metadata (EXIF, IPTC etc.).
