With the ability to add photos to your MacBook through the use of websites, digital cameras, or emails your computer can become overloaded. With the addition of so many photos also come the frustrations of trying to organize multiple copies of the same photos that vary in size, file type and other slight differences. With all these photos comes the frustration related to a computer that is drastically slowing down in speed.
Before you go through the process of cleaning up duplicate files, you need to know how they got there to begin with so that you can attempt to prevent from doing it again. One of the biggest means for the creation of duplicate files is when photos are taken on digital cameras. When pictures are uploaded, many forget to delete them from their camera and take more pictures, thus uploading them on to the computer more than once. Other common reasons for having duplicates is making copies with names, changing the format the image is saved in, and downloading and installing various software.
Removal of duplicate photos in MacBook can be done either manually or via duplicate finder and removal software. Manually finding and deleting duplicates, although it is a timely process is extremely effective and highly accurate as no errors can be made with proper care. With duplicate finder software, duplicate photos can be found faster, using a variety of labels, the interface is customizable, and there is the ability to retrieve photos even after the iMac has been restarted. You can try this type of software out for yourself by downloading Tidy Up!

2011 is more than half-way complete, and in this time, Macintosh computers have seen a lot of changes. Namely, they’ve become more popular than ever. In effect this means there is more freeware, shareware, programs, and other installations that are being downloaded and ran than any time in the history of mac computers. This results in a lot of new options for a mac user if they need a particular type of software. Since this website deals with duplicate file cleaner software, that’s the software I always have in mind.
The best duplicate file finder for mac in 2011 should have the following characteristics:
- Easy to use
- Deletes all duplicates that the user selects
- Makes it easy to review all duplicate matches
- Ability to preview duplicate songs, photos, emails, and other files before deletion
- Makes back-ups a one click process
- Is quick to scan
- Has A Customer Service if any help is needed
- Does not charge any unnecessary fees or have recurring costs
- Speeds the computer up by a noticeable amount after completion
- Is cost-sensible
- Does not install any extras that the user does not know about or need
I’ve reviewed nearly a dozen different software packages this year, and no program has taken the top spot away from my pick, TidyUp

Your MacBook is running slow? This is a common issue once a computer has been used for more than a few months, and after enough programs have been installed. One quick fix is to upgrade your Apple computer’s RAM. Most models come with 512 mb of RAM, when you can upgrade all the way up to 2 GB. However, if you can’t afford the prices that Apple charges to upgrade (and they can be quite expensive) then consider some alternatives to speed up your mac.
The first common-sense solution is to close your open applications. I find that a lot of Apple computer users like to leave multiple applications open, including iTunes, your internet browser, your e-mail reader, your photo viewer, and many more programs. This can easily cause the slowdown you are experiencing. If you’re not using iTunes, shut it off, as it burns a lot of system resources while it’s open.
You should also restart your computer from time to time. It’s easy to just shut the lid of your laptop when you’re finished with it, but this means it has to load up your programs and preferences from memory each time you boot up. This can cause additional slowdown.
Keep your Macbook cool. A laptop that is overheated will perform in a strange manner, and will not run as fast as it should. This can happen if you are always using your laptop on the bed, or somewhere where the fans are not able to blow out air. The best place to use your laptop is on a flat surface, like a table.
Turn off unused applications. Some programs automatically run, whether or not you’re using them. You can adjust these settings in your System Preferences set-up. For example, if you don’t need bluetooth capabilities or speech recognition, then turn these features off.
Disable Widgets. If you’re not using them, don’t boot them up. They use system resources.
And predictably, remove duplicate files. Duplicate mp3s, photos, and program files will bloat your system quicker than any other offender. If you have moved from another laptop, or if you think you might have duplicates, you should run a program to get rid of duplicates.
Hope this helps!
