MacBook: Face Rec. / Image Rec.

Part 1) I have tons of images from my research, where I have the same image in many different folders, often using the same filename. These do not involve a human face.


Part 2) I have lots of redundant photos of family and friends on disk and also imported into the "Photos" app on my MacBook.
None involve a human face.

I need a solution to help reduce redundant photos on my disk, since they are starting to clog my disk.

What options to I have?

If I used Picassa, does that only match like photos when there is a human face? Or is it pattern based, so I can use it to match on pictures of buildings also?

Is there an app I can use on the Mac, which I can keep private? I do not relish handing over 100% of my research and family photos to Big Brother in the Sky.

Thanks

Use Google Photos. It will organise your photos and remove duplicates

Google Photos matches objects, locations etc. too

The kind of recognition done on photos by Google and such requires machine/pattern learner and for this you need to give them "access" to it
