"Imagine having thousands of images on disparate machines. many are
dupes, even among the disparate machines. It's impossible to delete
all the dupes manually and create a singular, accurate photo image
base? Is there an app out there that can scan a file system, perhaps a
target sub-folder system, and suck in the images-- WITHOUT creating
duplicates? Perhaps by reading EXIF info or hashes? I have eleven file
systems saved, and the task of eliminating dupes seems impossible."

Worthwhile reading the comments, mentioning various tools.

Cheers, Peter
