If I could I'd write this with very, very little characters, so nobody sees 
it ;-) , but imgSeek has an ingenious ability to find similar pictures - it's 
results in search for duplicates are much better (it finds more similar 
pictures and produces less "false doubles"). 

But its slow, very complicated to use, the produced list is not that 
meaningful as in Gilles tool and it's buggy (it sometimes deletes wrong 
files, if you don't do everything exactly as you should).
