I experiment confusion between pictures with the same.
When I tag a picture, another one (with the same name) is found when I search from the tag.

If you import the same image file twice (from different directories) phTagr handels them as two different media which could be tagged separatly.

So if you tag the first file but not the second only the first file will be displayed on the lookup of the given tag. At I uploaded the same file to different directories and tagged one picture with tag "bw". The second picture is tagged with "bw" and "copy". If you lookup the tag bw both pictures are shown. If you lookup copy only the second is shown.

The filename allone does not merges the files to one media. Today´s digital cameras numbers the files mostly with a 4 digit number. So after 10000 shots the camera restarts the numbers and filename duplicates occur.

If you would like to find duplicates in your media set, try the DupFinder plugin. It merges all media with the same timestamp.
