Homebrew SDR HF Transceiver - decision time

The video below shows my Homebrew SDR rx working with the GUI on the STM32F746-Discovery board.

However, what you might notice is the presence of image products in the waterfall. The processing of the signal suppresses all but the very strongest of these so they don't appear as audio but it is mighty confusing when they are on the waterfall but actually not there (if you see what I mean)!

I am in the process of building a QSD or Tayloe Detector, which should provide better rejection of images. I have breadboarded one of these, it works but not very well. I think that this might be due to the length of leads I have on the breadboard so I am trying to use Eagle CAD to design a circuit board to overcome these problems.
