Compare pictures with each other

What features would you like to see in Pixelmator Pro?

I would love a button between show original pic and the reset button.

1. This features would compare the original with the modified one. I would be much easier to compare them, especially if I am unsure about how the fewer would feel with looking on both of them.
2. A slide over feature to compare them via a slider.
3. Open a different pic to replace one of the two with an other photo. It would be great if I am in this mode that I can use all of the editing tools.
I should have called it Replace instead of open files.

I made a screen shot how it would look like, kind of... Image

Yes, more or less the same idea! Waiting for the comment from the Pixelmator team now...

Best greetings!

This would possibly make sense when using certain tools (Adjustments and Effects) but since Pixelmator Pro is a layer-based image editor and there could be lots of different layers, a global, always-visible button might not be the best idea as, for lots of layers (text/shapes), it wouldn't be relevant. This might be more suited to a version of Pixelmator Photo on the Mac, if we ever create one.

Thanks for saying that. What would be the differences between pix pro and Pix photo?

Well, in Pixelmator Photo, you edit a single photo and there's always a single original photo for every file, I guess the difference is that Pixelmator Photo is like Aperture (but without the library management features) and Pixelmator Pro is more like PS.
