It's not that it's inaccurate, it is simply recording the number of times the image has been viewed. The view incrementor can only increase when the photo is requested by the showphoto.php script; as such, your number is reflective of the number of times the image has been requested/viewed.
You can turn off the display of views in the Admin Options -> Show Photo Options - Display Views? set to NO.
