How are duplicate images counted in my usage?

Source and generated image counts for your Roboflow workspace.

If an image's content is the exact same, it is only counted towards your usage once. For example, if you merge two datasets, the merged dataset and the two original datasets exist in your account. However, there is no charge for the merge, because the images are duplicates.

Roboflow utilizes similarity matching to filter out duplicate or nearly identical images from your dataset (when uploading to the same project), so you don't end up with issues such as training leakage from the same image(s) existing in multiple sets (train/valid/test sets).
