I've just got myself a lot of new hard disk space and I want to tidy up and
re-catalogue three separate collections of Jpegs (maybe 8,000 pix in all).
And I want to eliminate duplicates - but I also want to be able to choose
which duplicate is best, and only trash inferior copies.
If I just drag one file of Jpegs into another file, I get only one choice -
replace duplicates with the dragged pix. No good.
I could use Graphic Converter to list all files, then manually locate and
compare - but there might well be 4 or 5 duplicates... Too tedious.
Graphic Converter is also useful for minor cataloguing because I can
drag/drop previews - but I cab only see a maximum of 4 rows of 5 previews
at a time.And I can't rename previews - I have to open the file, rename in
the Finder and re-open GC to re-locate the pic.
So is there an elegant way to first eliminate inferior duplicates, then
re-arrange and re-name large quantities of pictures?
PS- I also have pix off the Web in Netscape format, which I can't view in
the same file as Jpegs. Can I reformat these to Jpeg or another
configuration to view together?
