    There are plenty of general dupliacte file removers - I'd just use one of thos and specify type jpg or whatever.

    There is some useful discussion on the link below plus links to packages to try (use the "quick selection guide" link if you want to dodge the discussion but I would recommend it.) The discussion is well worth reading as there are some issues associated with duplicate files of which users need to be aware. As you intend searching only for images this concern may not be so critical in your case but it is still good to be familiar with them.

    Deleting duplicate files is no problem, since they have the same name altogether. But deleting duplicate images may cause some headache, as the program has to analyze the true content of files, ignoring compression and headings and all. If that's what you want, I suggest contacting Pentagon or something...

    No offense.
