    Default Photo Organizing Software?? (sort out duplicates)

    Hey gang, I would like to pick the TBN brain. I have a seperate 80 (or something drive) that is used just for photo's. My problem is that some of my family are not very organized with their photo's when they dump from the camera. They often do not delete old pictures on the sd cards and then next time these photo's are downloaded again. This has happened over and over and now I have about 25 gigs of photos, but I would not be surpised if 8 gig are duplicates. Is there a program that could sort out the duplicates??? The thought of going thru these files is mind boggling! I pride myself on being pretty computer savy, but I have not come up with anything yet.
    Thanks, Dave

    There was a member that uses piccasa by google and he loves it, I don't know much about it but you could do some reading about it and see if it's for you

    I googled search "duplicate files" and came up with many programs, none of which I have used. If I had to choose I would start with this one from PC word
    As with any "free" program make sure you have anti spyware software installed. I use Adaware by Lavasoft and Spybot search and destroy. Spybot has a nice immunize feature that seems to keep things clean.

    Perhaps you could just sort them by the created date, then do a thumbnail view of them. All of the duplicates should be sitting next to each other.

    I sort by size in Windows Explorer....probably the same as a date sort.

    You could try Extensis Portfolio Font Managers - Creative Asset Management - Font Management - Digital Asset Management

    I think they have a fully functional 30 day demo.

    What I do is use Irfanview (free) as my pic viewer. It is a very popular viewer. Not only is it a viewer there are some editing features and it can read text and hex files and can convert from one file format to another. Has a thumbnail viewer and slide show.

    I set up a series of directories for orgainizing the pics. For categories that are repeating I set up sub-dirs. i.e. Vacation then 06, 07, etc. Have one dir I call new pics and dump memory cards to that dir. Prgm prompts if dups are found. From that dir I can move pics one at a time or in groups to other dir I've set up. You can either move or copy to other dirs.

    It's simple, free and works for me. IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide

    It's not the Google Picasa site for sure, and the spelling isn't the same. I passed it to the mods. I hope they pull it.
