    other photos that don t have this metadata assigned to them If you have different copies of a particular photo and you ve done more face identification keyword tagging and so forth on some photos than others then this rule can be helpful to choose the photo that you ve done the most work on Keep the largest duplicate compares the file size of each duplicate photo and keeps whichever one is the largest This is useful if you have some duplicates that have been scaled down from the original so you can keep the largest copy and get rid of the smaller ones Editing rules The built in rules are a good start but since everybody s photo collection is unique you may need to create a custom duplicate rule to choose keepers according to what makes the most sense for your own photos To create a custom rule click the rules pop up menu and select Edit Rules from the bottom of the menu This will present you with the following window You can view but not edit the built in rules to see how they are implemented To create your own rule click the gear button in the upper right and select New Rule from the menu that appears If you d like a rule similar to one of the built in rules select that rule from the pop up menu then click the gear button and select Duplicate Rule to make a copy of that built in rule You can specify a name for your new rule by typing it in the Name field Each duplicate rule is made up of one or more criteria that you d like to use to compare the photos in each duplicate group By evaluating these criteria one or more photos from the group will be chosen as the keeper from that group The criteria available to compare include the photos rating modification date size format and much more See the Criteria Details section for more information Because in many cases the duplicate photos will also have identical values for many of these attributes you can specify multiple criteria to evaluate the photos by If the first criteria is identical for some or all the photos in the group the evaluation will then proceed to the second criteria and so on until they have all been evaluated How rules are evaluated In the example above we have three photos that have been identified as duplicates by PowerPhotos and the four criteria from the rule displayed above that were specified to evaluate the duplicate photos The first criteria says to choose whichever photo has a custom title However none of the photos have a custom title set so this criteria does not choose any photos and evaluation continues to the next criteria The second criteria says to prefer whichever photo has the newest modification date Two of the photos have been edited and have the same modification date but the photo
