Review - PhotoSweeper for Mac from Overmacs/Gwinno Software

I think most bloggers will agree to me when I say that bloggers tend to keep so many photos in their computers, flash drives, hard disks and even in their cloud storage. Do you agree? Well, I certainly do. I love taking snaps because I use them for my articles and product/service/hotel reviews and what's an article or review without any valid proof such as image to support them? Right?

Needless to say, my computer and anywhere else I can store my digital photos are bursting at the seams. I think most of the time, I just click and click but forget to delete photos that are duplicate, taken in series and even substandard. This is where PhotoSweeper comes into the picture, no pun intended!

PhotoSweeper is an app in Mac developed by Overmacs/Gwinno Software. It is a great app that will save you time from searching through your photos and remove duplicate copies and even similar ones.

Here are its features:
-Sweeps through your stash of digital photos, compares them and removes duplicate and similar copies
-You can drag and drop your individual photos or even the entire folder from your repository or from iPhoto, Aperture and even from Adobe Lightroom
-You can filter and adjust the ways you want the pictures removed either from the image size, date it was taken, file name
-It is very fast in scanning all your photos
-It will mark any duplicate and similar photos after scanning before you can move them to the trash
-It supports other formats such as DNG (Digital Negative by Adobe) which is commonly used by Lightroom, Photoshop and other Adobe programs
-You can lock the photos you do not want to be moved to the trash
-You can unmark photos that have been marked by PhotoSweep as similar or duplicate by right-clicking and choosing "unmark" from the dialogue box
-Easy to use and very fast

This app is compatible with Mac using OS X 10.6.6 or later

Price: $9.99 in Mac app store

My recommendation:
I highly recommend this to everyone. This is great for photographers, bloggers, people who have massive collection of photos or almost everyone who wants to organize and reduce redundant photos in their collections. Also, this will be the perfect app for those who want to choose the best shot from a series of photos taken.

This app is a big help for me in sorting my photos which will normally take me days or even weeks to complete. I have finished sorting through my photos taken since September 2013 up to today in just few minutes. Now, I have more extra space and organized photo collection. You should get this app!
