Manage similar photos

CleanMy®Phone recognizes similar photos as sets of alike or almost identical photos taken at short intervals, such as shots of the same scene or object from different angles. When organizing your photo library, the app arranges your photos in categories and puts similar photos in a separate group – Similars – within each respective category.

To review and clean up similar photos:

  1. On the tab bar, tap Organize.

  2. Choose a period for which you'd like to find photos (Last Week or Last Month) or apply a Custom Filter (by year or location).

  3. Tap Scan.

    Scanning may take some time, depending on the size of your photo library, previous scans, and the filter you chose in the previous step.

  4. After scanning is complete:

    1. Tap a category you want to review.

    2. In the Similars group, swipe through each set of similar photos and select those you want to remove.

      Tip: If you want to take a closer look at a photo, tap the photo to open it full screen. Here you can also enhance the photo, add it to an album or favorites, view its metadata, share it, or save it to Sensitive.

    3. Tap Clean, then tap Delete to confirm the action.

    4. Review the results, then tap Continue to go back to the group.

    5. Tap the Close button to return to the scan results, and continue with other categories.

That's it! Now you only have the pictures that matter most to you, and you've even freed up some space on your device.
