Merged

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Sort by more fields, sort by multiple fields

How can this be classified as "Implemented" when it is merged with a function that does not exist?

I see we can sort by Aspect Ratio; however, that is NOT the same as File Size.

Particularly when dealing with smartphones and backups, duplicates can have different timestamps, filenames, etc., but still be the same (or nearly so) image with the same file size. Sorting by File Size would allow us to quickly skim the thumbnails to find duplicates!

Note: This conversation was created from a reply on: Lightroom: Search or Filter by Pixel Dimensions, Long Edge Dimension & Aspect Rat....

"Sorting by File Size would allow us to quickly skim the thumbnails to find duplicates!"

In addition to List View, this article describes two plugins that attempt to find duplicates directly: https://www.lightroomqueen.com/clean-duplicate-photos/
