Software / Applications

While there are many good applications used by professional photo organizers to organize digital photo and video collections, only two currently merit a place on this page.

Duplicate Cleaner Pro

by Digital Volcano

For PC Only

I believe in using the best applications available for digital photo organizing tasks.

I have used and tested many applications for duplicate photo and video removal, but none can de-dupe as accurately and thoroughly as Duplicate Cleaner Pro (DCP).

With an extensive list of Scan Criteria to choose from, and excellent options to help you filter and mark files for removal, you’ll be able to do the best possible work for your clients.

Since early 2021, I have been working with the developers and advising them on how they can better meet the needs of professional photo organizers.

Duplicate Cleaner Pro is essential to the Megabyte Method for organizing digital photo and video collections.

Directory Opus Pro

by GPSoftware
For PC Only

This highly customizable file manager is advertised as a replacement for Windows File Explorer—but it offers so much more!

In its default state it has great features, but the customizations I have added are what makes it the ideal application for working with digital photo and video collections.

With the addition of an ExifTool script, a wide variety of Exif photo and video metadata fields can be added as columns for viewing, sorting, and filtering photos and videos.

All my Directory Opus Pro customizations are sharable via a configuration file. I have added over 60 customizations to Directory Opus Pro, each one for a specific photo organizing task–like adding a date to an ‘undated’ photo or video by copying a date from the filename or using a filter to select and separate out extremely short videos.

The Megabyte Method for organizing digital photo and video collections depends on Directory Opus Pro. My Megabyte Method coaching clients receive the configuration file as part of my coaching service.

I do not yet have a discount code for Directory Opus 13, which was released in January 2024.

The Photo Managers

The Photo Managers is a company providing a membership community plus resources and courses for photo managers and photo organizers.

The Photo Managers offers excellent support for new and established photo organizers/photo managers who need help with the many essential aspects of running a business—like marketing and finance.

The private Facebook group (for members only) is a great place to get your questions answered, to share ideas, and to offer advice to other members.

I recommend joining The Photo Managers if you need business help and want the support of an active community.

While The Photo Managers provides good information about organizing and scanning printed photos, I do not recommend their courses and resources geared toward professionals that cover technical aspects of digital photo organizing such as duplicate removal and metadata.

I (Meg Macintyre) am no longer a member, but my years of involvement with The Photo Managers were valuable to me and helped shape my career.
