That looks really slick, but the flow seems a little awkward. While
it's nice that it only bothers the user if it detects duplicate images,
the dialog seems annoying. Also, the status area is confusing. (image
4 of 4, but only 2 images appear!) Check out how Picasa does it:
The duplicate section is a checkbox. All images are previewed, and the
duplicates are automatically rejected when the checkbox is checked.
Maybe a similar checkbox could be used here? It might only be sensitive
if duplicates are detected. Checking the box would hide the images
which won't get imported. And the status area could be updated as well.
(Maybe "image 4 of 4 (2 duplicates)")
