You can use the Duplicate Image Finder to locate duplicate images in your Asset Bank. The duplicates are found based on pHash comparison. You can decide which duplicate images should be marked as original and delete other duplicate images. Currently, there is no option to resolve or ignore duplicates.
Note: if you filter the assets through Smartfilter, the search will be for those filtered assets but within the whole DAM.

Use Duplicate Image Finder In Asset Bank
Navigate to the Asset Bank.
Click on the toolbar
In each row, you will see a set of images, with their asset title, description, and tags, that are considered duplicates.
The first image displayed is considered the original image, but you can click Make Original for a different image to update this.
a. The original image is chosen based on most pixels (width * height). If they are all the same, it ranks on the ‘date uploaded.’
To delete a duplicate, click beneath the image or choose Delete all duplicates (#) to delete all non-original images.
Currently, metadata is not merged with the original image, so if you decide to delete a duplicate, its metadata gets deleted as well.
- Duplicates are found based on pHash (perceptual hash) comparison. When you run the duplicate image finder, the hashes are compared, and if they are the same, these images are considered duplicates
