Image and likeness

I’ve always been fascinated that in the Creation story (Gen 1:26) humanity is made in the image and likeness of God. I want to know if this is emphasis by repetition (as is often the case in the Psalms) or whether ‘likeness’ is different from ‘image’; and if the latter, what is the difference?
