To a degree that's just whack-a-mole. It would not be excessively 
difficult to make minor alterations to the image sufficient to change the 
hash without noticeably changing it visually.

It might be prohibitive to do that per-message, but sending a batch of a 
hundred messages while you're modifying the image for the next batch would 
probably work.
