Identifying duplicate photos in Folders and Albums

Some of my folders and albums are very large and may have 300- 500 pictures in them. Several of those pictures are duplicates. Is there a way for picassa to determine which pictures are duplicates, so they may be removed quickly and easily?

Try Tools->Experimental->Show Duplicate Files

It’s still up to you to delete the ones you don’t want to keep, but this will show you the duplicates
