What is the best way to get rid of all my photo duplicates? I have about 1,000 pictures on my computer because someone was supposed to be fixing my computer and he goofed-big time?

Unfortunately, you'll probably have to go through all of the photos and delete the ones you do not want. If you're using a PC, you can hold down the "Ctrl" key and that will allow you to select multiple photos so you can delete the selected items at the same time instead of going one by one. (It's slightly different if you're using a Mac, but you can do the same thing, you'll just press a different key.) If you have an entire folder that you know you don't want, you could delete the entire thing. It is a good idea to keep back ups of photos just in case. We suggest saving photos on an external hard drive as a back up. Hope this helps!
