Over the years I've taken massive amounts of photos that translate to thousands of files. I've also moved the files around quite a bit creating multiple copies of the same image. Now I want to create a centralized copy of all the images but I want to take out any of the duplicate images. Standard copy/replace doesn't work since some images with the same filename aren't the same image.

Is there anyway to delete the duplicate images? I'm thinking of some kind of checksum for each image and running it against every other image in the set. Thanks!

I did this on my other PC which I don't have access to at the mo......but I think Picasa has a utility to do it, free download from google.

Do the duplicate images have the same file name even though they are in a different folder?

Yeah...and also some images have different filenames but are the exact same file. I had to change the filenames when uploading them to websites and such.
