Algorithm to sniff "similar" photos

Sometime back I suggested Pixoto team to use their sophisticated algorithms (the same they use for image deals) to detect "similar" photos during photo upload. The Similar photo issue is creating a turmoil among the members depriving of a fair competition.
I tried my hands on some basic hashing algorithms to find similar looking images from the profile thumbnails. Though the project is far from over (few false positives), but the initial trials proved quite fruitful. Please have a look.
The following is the analysis for the profile link: http://www.pixoto.com/anggadinarardia...

I will continue to make more such analysis and put up in this location.

Sounav - This is really cool work you've done. I would love to learn more about how you accomplished this.

Using some sort of functionality like this might really help our report image team find the repetitive images as well as our stock photography solution.

Please contact me off-line at jason@pixoto.com

Thanks!

I am really in favor of Pixoto doing something to rid us of people uploading similar photos form the same shoot,..and/or re-do's of the same image. I think a re-do would be okay if its significantly different,.
It looks to me like one image is reloaded the next week. Or worse several times the same week. I think there are people who are good and they consistently walk away with all the firsts ...but they are the ones flooding us with images nearly identical to one another. Doesn't seem fair does it. Check out the competition in dogs for example.
Losing my love for Pixoto fast after one week.
