“Searching Your Computer, Part 4: – Duplicate Image Files – Family History Update Webinar”

Donald R. Snow
3/3/21

Categories: RT, S

Talk Abstract:
This is Part 4 of a 4-part series about searching for files on your computer and discusses finding duplicate image files which includes photos from digital cameras and scanned. Image files may be exactly the same or very similar and can be the same picture, but different formats, e.g. jpg vs tif. We will discuss programs to find these similar files and even give you the percent that they are similar. They show you both, so you can delete one or keep both. Image files take up lots of space on your hard drive(s), so duplicates need to be cleaned up. The notes for this class and related articles, all with active internet links, are on Don’s webpage https://uvtagg.org/classes/dons/dons-classes.html .
