You can set the creation date of a picture or video as its access and modification time: If the creation date was saved in the exif data of some media, you can extract it with "exiftool -ee -CreateDate" and then "touch" the file with that time.

To do this automatically save the following script e.g. as /usr/local/bin/exiftool_set_create_date
# exiftool_set_create_date: set the file date from exif "Creation Date".

EDIT 2012-02-03/2014-10-11:
In Debian I just discovered "duff". A tool to find duplicate files-.-
Unfortunately it doesn't work with symbolic links to files.

All files with their md5sum
find . -type f -exec md5sum '{}' ';' > $PICS
Lists with only md5sum, once with duplicates removed (should be improved to handle double spaces in filenames).
cat $PICS | sed -r "s|^(.*)
