duplicate photos

  bendigo 07:53 27 Dec 06

Probably a real ding-a-ling question-----When there are duplicate photos which have been created automatically by software, such as HPphotosmart or Picasa2 in addition to My Pictures, I presume they are all taking up individual space on my hard disk, and are independant. ie editing one does not affect the duplicate. This is as I understand it to be except I seem to remember that when I had picasa2 on my previous computer if one deleted a picture from p2 it also removed it wherever it appeared. Is there any software which can trace duplicates for deletion. Like many people I have hundreds of pics!!!. Apart from the last query, I'm not sure whether this posting is a question or just a request for confimation. Thanks anyway.

In Picassa2 You have the choice of either deleting the photo from the HD (Right click on photo) or clearing it from Picassa (Clear button at bottom) I dn't know of a program that will find duplicates, maybe someone else does.

this is what i believe happens when you download your pics it stores them in a folder a lot a applications tend to use the folder my pictures. all picaasa does is catalog those pics and displays them. it doesnt move them or create duplicates

In desperation I am putting this message into this thread as I cannot think what else to do.
I cannot use any search box on this site. I get an error page to which I respond but so far have had no luck. Has anyone had the same problem and if so how was it cured.
