The Photo DeClutter tool helps you clean up similar photos in your Mylio Photos Library. These images are typically captured using burst mode on a camera, resulting in several near-duplicate photos. The Photo DeClutter tool scans your entire library and generates a list of files where it detects two or more images captured within a specified time frame.
How does Photo DeClutter work?
Photo DeClutter uses existing information in your catalog to quickly identify near-duplicate images and allows you to apply the following criteria to locate similar photos:
Match Aspect – All photos in a set must be either portrait (vertical) or landscape (horizontal) orientation.
Match Camera – All photos in a set must be captured with the same camera (make, model, and serial number).
Within – All photos within XX seconds will be considered a set. This is set to 2.0 seconds by default but can be adjusted to fit your needs.
