Show duplicate pictures with Picasa

Very useful when you goofed and that many pictures get duplicated. 

You should understand how it works before : when you turn in "show duplicates" mode, Picasa only shows duplicate pictures, which explains why if you delete one of the two duplicates of a picture, the other picture disappears. Don't be scared, you will find it back later when you will leave the "show duplicates" mode.

  1. Click on the Tools / Experimental / Show Duplicate Files
  2. Only duplicate pictures are not displayed. You can delete photos individually until the last one.
  3. Once everything is done, click on Back to View All (at the top). All photos and pictures reappear, except the duplicates you deleted.
