Description Eric Seynaeve 2010-12-27 23:34:52 UTC
Version:           1.6.0 (using KDE 4.5.4) 
OS:                Linux

When I want to go through the list of duplicate images, I have to select each item separately and delete one. For a large set of duplicates, this is a time-consuming process.

Maybe it would be better to show a table view, where the rows would be the duplicate items found and the columns would be the different duplicates (possible one column for each folder, it this wouldn't clutter the table). This way, it would be easy to select multiple duplicate items at once before doing an action on them.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a large set of duplicate items
2. generate the fingerprints
3. find the duplicates
4. remove the duplicate pictures

Actual Results:  
for each duplicate, following actions are needed:
1. select a picture
2. delete it (delete button, popup, ...)
3. (optional) confirm the delete

Expected Results:  
select multiple duplicate items a once and delete them in one go
