In picturing (very) small animals I often make a series of nearly the same pictures. To pick out the very best takes many actions. It would be nice to have a 'compare all' function which places all pictures on the available screen and when you use the zoom tool or scroll tool in one, all are affected at the same time.
This for example is a combination of two out of a series of eight:

You can do this in Photoshop if you open all the files you want to compare and choose Window>Arrange>Tile...

You can then use any of the match commands under the same menu:

Window>Arrange>Match Zoom
Window>Arrange>Match Zoom
Window>Arrange>Match Location
Window>Arrange>Match All

A better solution is to use Adobe Bridge, which comes with Photoshop. It is designed for previewing, comparing, rating, flagging and keywording your images:
