I haven't modified nor used it in years (I don't own a digital camera anymore...) so I ignore if it still works with up to date libraries, but its "--nodupes" option does what you want, and its numerous other command line options ( help you solve the main problems of managing directories full of pictures.

It's Free Software, licensed under the GNU GPL of the Free Software Foundation.

jalet Freeloaders (120 comments)

There are two kinds of them : the one who complains for any reason and often doesn't even know why, wasting coders' time, and the one who sends logically articulated problem reports (not necessarily in a bug tracker), helping coders to improve their software.
