Query:   I somehow have thousands of duplicate photos on my Mac. Please tell me there’s a way to get rid of them besides deleting them one by one. I don’t have enough years left for that.

ANSWER: There are several programs that scan your Mac for duplicate files. They’ll even find identical photos, music files and documents that have different names—like a photo from your kid’s birthday called “IMG_0049.JPG” in one folder and “smooshcake.jpg” in another.

I use a program called “Gemini,” which costs $10, but I found similar apps that are currently on sale. For example, “The Duplicate Finder” is $3 until May 10, and “Duplicate Detective” is the same price until July 1. All are available in the Mac App Store.
