[digiKam-users] Comparing jpg files in directories with subdirectories to remove duplication etc.

Hi Budge,

In my opinion this is indeed a very common use case. But alas DK is
currently not really helpful with this.
I do think this is indeed a difficult problem to work on. And multiple
dialogs may be needed. I really hope the devs want to give this priority. I
will gladly help with designing the UI/UX if the help is wanted.

What I currently do is use the 'jdupes' tool to identify files that are
exactly identical and then delete duplicates. Then I have to use something
like GwenView or similar to compare each duplicate.
