FlickrDeDupr is an application to automatically identify duplicate
images in a Flickr account. It's nothing fancy and relies on
the Title being the same along with the DateTaken attribute.
This did the job for me to clean up the mess from the Windows
FlickrUploadr which has a habit of failing to upload and then offers
you the option to "Try Again" but fails to remove photos that had
already been uploaded before trying again. Hopefully it works
for others to help clean up their accounts.
For any feedback for the moment you can reach me via
Flickr (add me as a contact to be able to send me a message).
warranty is given or implied. Usual disclaimer stuff applies.
As I haven't hade much feedback and haven't had the time to maintain this the source is now avaialable at https://github.com/hastarin/FlickrDeDupr.
This program uses Athena (a LINQ to Flickr) API
