I have 2 diagrams which are similar but not identical.  I want to have them side by side on the screen for easy comparison,  or have 1 in the background and the other in a layer so that I can flip between them.  How can I do this?  I greatly appreciate any help, Thanks. RMHC.

Hello @rcoombs,

OK. Let's work this through.Are the images the same size?

You can increase the canvas size.

 

^ This

 

Press Ctrl + Shift + R

 

In the dialog, type in a figure to double the Width dimension. Anchor the  existing image left middle and click OK.

 

Now move one layer to the right so the images appear adjacent.

Hi ANONYMISS,

Thanks for the reply. Yes the 2 images are the same size. I wish to place them side by side on the background if possible for easy comparison.

Activate the layer you want to move by clicking on it in the layers window

Press M to activate the Move tool.

Drag the image sideways or use the keyboard arrows.
