With the current boom in smartphones and social media, image sharing faces problems, like redundant data. Thereby, compromises the storage of a user?s device. In this paper, we design an image hashing and verification technique to check for redundancy. The algorithm creates a hash of the image and is stored along with the image before sending. Upon receiving an image, its hash code is retrieved from the image and is cross referenced with the lookup table in the device. If an entry already exists, the received image is discarded. This reduces the storage of redundant images in the device and thereby avoids wastage of device memory.
