Please have a look at this profiles,
http://www.pixoto.com/anggadinarardia...

They are respectively no. 1 and 2 last week (Buildings & Architecture Category) and contains photos which defies rules concerning photo duplicity. If this is the state of proceedings, I will be the first person to leave Pixoto.

Pixoto, I love your concept, your alogo's etc. But the way these so called "photographers" flouting the rule book just for the sake of "wining" defies me with the concept of fair competition.

One suggestion from my end to Jason, if you can detect two similar looking photographs using algorithms for image-deal, why can't you use the same algo while photo uploading for duplicity and warn the uploader during the time of uploading.

I tried some simple algo, related to pattern recognition, hue counts, Normalized cross-correlation etc. they are giving good result on many of the photographs. But I think you have more sophisticated algorithms then my simple ones. Please bring some innovation in this area, that's a request.

another interesting fact on close encounter with the above compared pix, except for 3 pix in the lower row, all are mirrored (water reflection), some even horizontally.
