: Thanks for all the suggestions, but what I want is to take big ol' 3.3

: Can a Photoshop action work iteratively through a folder and
: dynamically create numbered file names for the results?
: Thanks again for any suggestions.
Have a look for a proggy called dPeg. It just might be able to do what you
want. It compares all pictures nominated and tells you which ones are likely
duplicates. It follows that whatever is left is different. You can vary the
Stop looking, I found it for you :)
