Tony,

No, that looks fine.  I'll look into it and get back to you tomorrow.

Apologies for resurrecting an old thread, but...

Kirk, can you remember if there was an outcome to this?

Variables in the find text are not evaluated.

Many thanks, that's the unequivocal answer I was looking for.

I'll continue to set up different 'Find...' snapshots, for different file types.


Use GraphicConverter who find duplicate pictures even if they have different names and locations.
This answers an unasked question :).

I have an old version of GraphicConvertor that I keep for two specific tasks, I never realised it did this. After a quick play it seems to work well and may be very useful in the future - thank you.


There is a clever workaround for this described by our Tech lead in this video
<snip>
Thanks for this, it's a technique I've taught to others, before I discovered PM's 'Find...'.

However, I do feel using a find string of "A.jpg B.jpg C.jpg" is quicker and more efficient (the video demonstrates using individual passes of "A.jpg" followed by "B.jpg").



Thanks again to Kirk, Soizic and MickO for taking the time to respond to my query.

When I have duplicated, and when this happens, it's around 1000 files, I use this workaround:

This is for windows. No idea on Mac.

Win+R, type "cmd" and opens the command prompt
Then I go to the folder with duplicates.
I put "dir *A.jpg" (change the filetype as needed) and I get a list of duplicates
Then "del *A.jpg" an voilá. No more duplicates.

Go back to PM and refresh. They are gone now.

Maybe not automated but it does the job.

Thanks!
