Hi Diego

Ah, now I see what you are trying to do.

Are the images identical to previous ones? Or are they new?
If they are not identical, I wonder why they are getting the same hash id?

Is the problem that different images with the same name are getting the
same hash id, or that you want the same images with the same name to be
in the collection twice?
These result in the same problem, but may have different solutions.

What platform are you on?
