Mylio Photos’ Deduplication tool helps you clean up unwanted duplicate photos from your media library. It starts by scanning your entire Mylio Photos Library and will generate a list of files where it detects two or more copies of the same media.
How does Deduplication work?
When you invoke the Deduplication tool, Mylio Photos uses existing information in your catalog to quickly identify specific criteria and determine if files are unique. If any of the following conditions are met, Mylio Photos will mark it as a duplicate:
- Exact files that are the same size and resolution
- Exact files that are the same name, but in a different folder
- Exact files that match, but have different names
- Exact files that match, but have different metadata
It is important to note that Mylio Photos will only detect exact matches. For instance, different sizes or resolutions or visually similar images such as a burst of shots that are nearly identical, will not be marked as duplicates.
