Windows photo gallery
« on: Thursday 05 January 12 16:39 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I'm hoping one of you clever people can help me!

 I use Windows photo gallery , and Ifan view, and I would like to know how I can view 2 or more photos at the same time, so I can compare features etc to try and identify people?

I have to tell you that I am not very familiar with either of these programmes, but am gradualy getting better!

Thanks

Hi Helen

In Irfanview click on

Image
Create panorama image

Click on Horizontal, then Add images, which will allow you to browse.

Once you've added the images, click on Create image (and save it if you want to)

You also have the option to change the spacing and colour between the images and/or put the images one below the other if you prefer

Simples!!

If you're really keen you can also combine images that you have created in this way

Thank you both ;D

I have managed to do this now, and find it much easier to compare people when they are next to each other ;D
