Deleting duplicate photos

November 30Hits:0

I am still using Aperture 2, on a Macbook Pro running snow leopard. I generally only look at and examine my projects (with folders and albums contained in them). The other day I took a look at my All Photos (in the library) and found that I had lots and lots of duplicates, and many triplicates of my photos (which don't show up in my albums). I have no idea how I got so many of them, but they must add up to hundreds if not a thousand or so.
I have started deleting the extras. Then I noticed that many of them are the original photo next to its edited photo. Is that normal? I thought that the originals were hidden somewhere and only the edited versions were in the library. Is this wrong? Should both of them be in the library? And, if I have deleted many of the unedited photos, have I eliminated the masters? Will my versions still be accessible, or am I ruining their presence by deleting the master (if indeed they are the masters). I realize that there are programs for deleting duplicates, but they are kind of expensive, except for Duplicate Annihilator, which won't run on Aperture 2.)
Please advise. Thanks for any help.
Nancy
