Hi all

I've downloaded the above plug-in to remove duplicates. It's doing exactly as I hoped, except it's giving reject flags to my .jpg files, not the .heic (which I want to keep). I have tried deselecting preferring larger file size, given the more efficient compression of .heic, but to no avail.

Any ideas how I can adjust the settings so that it reverses the reject flags for me?

Thanks in advance

I had a thought - that I should display the resultant smart collection that the plug-in creates by file type. This would obviously separate out the .HEIC and .JPG files, allowing me to assign reject flags (R/Js) to the latter while deselecting the R/Fs from the former quite easy using the Command key.

That should have done the job nicely, but I can now see that there are a few rogue .JPGs which have had a '-2' extension added to their name on import, because of the duplication with the source folder, meaning that in certain cases the plug-in has correctly identified the .HEIC as the original/preferred file to keep, while rejecting the .JPG (by virtue of it having a longer file name).

So, sadly this quick re-sort hasn't quite worked. If it was only a small number of images, I could manage with the plug-in, sort and then a manual / visual check and manual adjustment of the R/Js, but unfortunately there are just too many to do this...

Grateful to anyone who has any ideas on the plug-in settings to give preference to .HEIC over the equivalent .JPGs when running the duplicate check with Teekesselchen.

I prefer to use the 'Keywords' option ( rather than flags). I can then view all files with the "Duplicate" KW and from there use 'Sort' options, Selections, & Invert Selections, to finally arrive at the files I want to delete.

Interesting idea. I must admit there's some concepts there, such as invert, I haven't come across. Will explore that further. Thanks
