Hi daryoushk,

 

Need more info: about how many images, out of how many total images, across how many folders, what kind of images (jpg, raw, tiff, etc)?

 

Which release of LR classic are you using, and what is your OS (and what release)?

 

Quick answer: there's no easy quick way within LRC to do this. There are tricks you can use to make it less painful.

Assuming you are using Lightroom-Classic: One suggestion- This blog article about a LrC Plugin-

Duplicate Photos (Lightroom Queen)

 

Note:

A Plugin that works within LrC will only 'find' duplicates within the Catalog Library.

A 'Dup Finder' that works outside of LrC can find images, that if deleted, may cause "Missing" error messages for image previews in the Catalog.

Deleting 'Duplicates' always involves decisions by you to determine which files to delete. There is no reliable 'automatic' way for this.

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 11.0.1, Photoshop 23.0.2, Lightroom 5.0, Bridge 12.0, Windows-10.

Another way is to use something like ThumbsPlus, outside of LrC, use it to apply keywords, the in LrC search on the keyword you created.
