Does anyone know of a solid, reliable program that will remove duplicate pictures in iPhoto? I have tried Annihilator, but it does not discover any duplicates - no matter which filtering/search option(s) I choose. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

iPhoto Diet works well, but has not been updated recently. Check to see if it is supported by your version of the OS you are using.

i bought duplicate annihilator and it didn't find the majority of my duplicates. is there another software? what else can i do?

most of my duplicates have different file names and some are not rotated in the same direction. this happened because my mom scanned about 3,000+ pictures and didn't understand my directions. every time she hit "save" it would RE-SAVE ALL of the pictures vs just the recently scanned ones.

case in point... my iphoto is a disaster right now and not even the duplicate annihilator (which i bought) helped. anything else i can do? i am looking manually but this literally could take me weeks! help!

also, i downloaded iphoto diet but i dont think it works with iphoto 08!

I searched and found this:

OS X Mac Tips & Tricks: Delete duplicate iPhoto photos

They give a link for "Tidy Up". I'm downloading it right now and will report back later.
