Well, maxic never did come back. I will nevertheless assume that he will be reading this.
Image Comparer 3.0 build 702 giveawayoftheday from Bolide is very good at it's job. I have only one or two minor requests for further improvement, otherwise IC3 is some kind of a leader, I think. Well, actually I might also have a one big request.
The minor requests are about the display of each image's file name. The only way to read the name is to activate the picture, so the titel becomes visible right under the big thumbnail. The window doesn't even support tooltips, which I think it should. But even more than tooltips, I would prefer to be able to grab the bothering line "C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\My Documents\..." and draw that part of it to the left, out of sight, so the actual folder- and file- names for all images becomes visible.
The bigger request is for Image Comparer to also support the various Webshots formats (WBC WBP WBZ WB1 and WBD). The source code for Ultimate Webshots Converter is available from the author at uwc[at]apinc[dot]org
