CleanMyMac 3 requires OS X 10.8 or higher and around 50 MB of free space to operate. If you haven’t upgraded your Mac to OS X Lion or Mountain Lion, you should take a look at CleanMyMac Classic! It’s designed for Macs as old as OS X 10.4 and can clean up outdated caches, logs, system junk, application leftovers and other trash on your Mac.
The trial version of CleanMyMac 3 scans your Mac entirely, but only allows you to clean up to 500 MB of unnecessary files on your Mac. Also the trial only allows you to use 3 of the Maintenance utilities.

The iPhoto Junk module scans your iPhoto library for invisible versions of files that were automatically or manually modified. For instance, if you imported a photo from your camera and then rotated and cropped it, iPhoto will keep an unrotated, uncropped copy of it as a backup. You can remove these unnecessary copies to significantly decrease the size of your iPhoto library!
iPhoto Junk supports iPhoto '11 (version 9+) only.
