The problem

The solution

The solution

To resolve your situation, you must first identify your duplicates and then decide which images you want to keep and what should be securely deleted. In many cases this can be very time-consuming. In addition, deciding what to keep and what to delete can be very difficult. The Nero DuplicateManager Photo software solves both problems: It helps you clean up your image archive with exact duplicate images and similar images quickly and accurately.

It's that simple

Simply select one or more of your specific cleanup folders and start image recognition. The Image Cleanup mode for exact duplicates shows what you should keep and what you should safely delete, while the similar Image Recognition mode conveniently automatically categorizes your similar images into "Places", "Series", "Motifs", "Resize", "Formats" and more. This makes it extremely easy for you to find, compare and decide which types of similar images you want to keep and clean.

Can I also identify and clean duplicated folders?

There is a very comfortable visualization for this. You will get recommendations what is safe to delete indicated by the color red. The green color marks what you should keep.

When duplicate images are detected by the software, how do I know which ones to clean and which ones to keep?

You will probably have many similar images with very similar motives in the archive (Series shots, HDR, etc.) The Nero DuplicateManager Photo software recognizes all your similar images and categorizes them into categories and groups of similarities. This way you can easily check and decide what you want to keep or clean. Categories are: Places, Series, Motives, Resized, Formats and Other.

What does similar image detection do, and how can I clean similar images?

Yes, within the category 'Series' or 'Motive' you will find these images detected and grouped for cleaning. So you can easily decide what to keep or delete.

I do HDR images on my smartphone and also some photo editing with filters on images. Is there a way to identify and clean such similar images?
