Do you know of any tool to find blurry/fuzzy pictures in a library ?
Just to find potential pictures to be deleted manually.
In an 8000 photo library it would be a useful time saver.
I just bought PowerPhotos as recommended by David. I began to sort out the mess in my partner photos librairies. Very useful. In a few minutes I added 200 photos to her library by creating a temporary library, importing 2060 photos in a folder (last time I emptied her camera) then Merging librairies (which deleted more 1800 duplicate).
She came up with this question.
I’m just a Mac nerd, I don’t take neither have any interest in photos.
Just helping cleaning stuff.
I looked at the package content of the .photolibrary sorted by size. The lowest file sizes are sharp photos with a lot of the photo being only one color. Also, some have part of the image sharp and some regions blurry (just normal focus choice - pictures almost come from a “real” camera). But indeed it may help finding too dark photos and some blurry ones to trash. Thanks.
Actually the ImageMagick trick looks pretty promising. The problem, depending on which macOS version you’re on, might be relating the photos’ “names” (i.e. how a photo is identified in Photos.app) to the actual filename. If you’re on Catalina, these identifiers are not the same I’m not sure when this change took place.
