Is there a program to clean & organize 1,000ís of saved photos?
Over the years I have accumulated many thousands of pictures & videos. I have them saved in several platforms. I have some saved on my laptop, on an external HDD, in Google Photos, in a work Cloud & in my Verizon cloud. Many of these pics & vids have several duplicates as the same pictures or folders holding the pictures were copied & pasted in other locations. It would take me at least a year just to consolidate & separate the individual pictures let alone deal with their duplicates. Back when I was using iTunes there were 3rd party apps you could dump all your music files into & they would separate the song & there copies from one another into a list. Then you could go down the list delete the duplicates & then move the songs into tidy folder or playlists. Iím sure nearly everyone has this same picture problem & itís gotten so out of hand we have given up even trying to sort or organize the photos & videos. So that got me thinking, Iím sure some genius out there has come up with a program/app that can use the embedded meta-data from each pic like date made, size, location stamp etc.. & organize the files into something usable.
Does anyone know of such a program or have any suggestions?

I cannot suggest any but if you do a search using manage media files you will find some utilities that will do what you want.

I've used VisiPics a number of times to identify duplicate photos on a few hard drives, but I don't store anything in the cloud. It's simple to use, and has never identified any that weren't identical photos.

Hey Jill, I don't know if the original poster (since he/he couldn't take the time to say thanks or anything) took a look at the software you suggested, or even if she/he installed and tried it, but I have taken a look and have now have it on my PC. I have loads of duplicate images, that really need to be cleaned out, this program should do the trick. Thanks for sharing. ;)

Hey Lufbra
Thanks for letting me know that it at least helped you.
I'm sure you'll be able to figure out how it works. Any questions just yell.
