I'd like to see that too. I guess an md5 checksum of the file would be the best, as that ensures the file is indeed identical or different. If not, your suggestion of the same size would be pretty damm good. Even if someone modifies a jpeg, the chances of their saved version being the same size is small. For a bitmap (bmp) though, which I think is rarely used, a modification of the same file would result in the same size, but a different checksum.
