How to Delete Duplicate images on Phone/Windoews?


Many of us often take burst shots, i.e., continuous captures. Most smart phones, including iPhone and Android phones, support burst shooting.

Sometimes, you may take burst shot without knowing — simply because your finger slipped a little bit and activated the function! For example, when you tap and hold the white circle in iPhone Camera and slightly moved your fingerpoint to left a little bit, iPhone Camera starts to take burst shots. Burst-shot gestures, i.e., orders, vary among different devices. These duplicates can take up much of your storage space. If you are troubled by photo duplicates, this blog is right written for you.

  3. Tap 'Select...' at the central bottom. Now, you've entered duplicate detection mode.
  4. You can now see 'Choose Favorites' at the center of the top banner, and a series of captures at the bottom banner which has a small grey inverted triangle on its central top as well as a small grey round dot below.
  5. Now, swipe to locate to any of the capture. By swiping, you can browse them quickly.

Method 2. Find and delete duplicate images on Windows 10
