I have a large number of duplicate image and audio files on my PC and I was wondering what the best duplicate file detector is. I would like one that compares image files so that a larger high resolution file is saved and a small low resolution duplicate is deleted. Thanks in advance!

There are several decent dupe finder programs, but I don't know of any that will auto delete. IMO, you need the info presented, and you ultimately make the decision to delete which file you want.
Give dupeguru a try...

Dupeguru appears to be working well. I should have done this years ago.

Great!
I've run it before to seek out MP3 files when I was re-ripping everything to hi-res FLAC.

This works so well that I bought the full version. In just a few hours, I have removed over 30GB of duplicates. I'm sure in a few days I will have delted at least 100GB of stuff that I don't need.
