Comparison between two different images: scroll both windows

Post by lovecraft22 »

Hi all;
I often need to compare two images from different folders so what I usually do is to open them in different tab in XnView and to tile the tabs vertically to look at both the images at once.

Now, it would be good if I could move to the following image for both the tab. At the moment I need to select the first tab move to the next image, select the second tab and move to the next image again.

Is there any way to do all of this at once?


Thank you

Lorenzo

Select two or more images in the browser and go to Tools » Compare... (Shift+C) for synchronized side-by-side panning & zooming.

No, you're right. These's still room for improvements to compare window.

I tried this option but when I go to tools, compare, the option is gray and I cannot select it. Any suggestion?
