Do a visual comparison of two images in photo editor

I usually get two images which should be identical. 
I would like to be able to compare them visually in an easy manner 

I was wondering if anyone knows of a software that provides the mechanism to load 2 images (show them one next to the other in a split screen) 
allow to perform a zoom on both image (both are being zoomed in the same time) 
I then should be able to use the scrollbar to move across the images. 
dragging the scrollbar will move both images by the same amount. 

This will allow me to visually compare the two images 
Does anyone know if such software exists? 
Yep... Photoshop... open both... view-->arrange menu... hold shift when you zoom to zoom both... shift+spacebar moves both.... match zoom and location does as such... hope i helped 8] ----for questions see photoshop help menu

Beyond Basic Edits photo

It may be true that no one reads an instruction manual or a user guide anymore. If you're one of these millions of individuals, change your habits for this one area. 
Image editing and image editing software are among the most sophisticated programs which are used on computers. Even the simple ones perform amazing mathmatical functions in executing some of their filter combinations. 
The use of the filters and the many other features of most of these programs can only be learned by understanding how the filter works and when best to apply a particular filter. 
Special Effects filters, such as lighting, lens flare, rainbow, and others, are included in almost all editing programs. These filters can definitely enhance an ordinary photograph or give a plain graphic some pizazz. Be cautious, though, to not overdo the filters. Very often the simple, easy to see and understand picture is the one which gets the message across the best. 
On the other hand, now that you've got one of today's sophisticated computer tools, use it for fun and make sure you experiment on a variety of images. 
Like riding a bicycle, learning how to use an image editing program is more difficult to describe than it is to learn. The trick is practice, and, oh yes, read the instructions and user guide that came with the program. It will contain a huge number of tricks and shortcuts which can shorten your learning time. 

Photo editor The GIMP Desktop and Canvas
Figure 1, below, is a screen shot of GIMP version 1.3 running on SUSE Linux 9.0 and the KDE desktop for Linux. Figure 2, on page 2, is a screen shot of GIMP version 1.2.5 running on Microsoft Windows 98 SE. 

Not all the dialog boxes or palettes are shown in these figures. However, please notice the overall similarity of the GIMP and Photoshop collections of tools, dialog boxes, and palettes. Please see the Dialogs and Palettes Note in the right-hand sidebar.

Some of the differences in appearance of the GIMP desktop in Figures 1 and 2 are because SUSE uses a different theme in its implementation of the GIMP than the default Windows GIMP theme. However, some differences are version-based differences.

For example, the menu-bar over the canvas screen in Figure 1 (GIMP 1.3) is not part of the canvas screen in GIMP 1.2.5 (Figure 2). 

In GIMP 1.3, some dialogs/palettes are toggled in the same dialog box. If you look at the bottom left dialog box in Figure 1 you should see the brushes dialog/palette. Just above the line Circle (11) (11x11) on that brushes dialog/palette there are five icons; tools, brush, gradient, paint bucket, and layers. You can toggle that dialog/palette to display either the Tool Options, Brush Grid, Gradient List, Pattern Grid, or Layer List dialog/palette by clicking on the appropriate icon.

You can add icons to toggle that bottom left dialog box to display any of the dialogs that are available in the GIMP. Or, you can add icons to toggle any dialog/palette to include any of the other dialogs.

This is a very handy feature of GIMP 1.3. By making one or more such combination dialog/palette boxes, you can keep dialog/palette clutter from creeping all over your monitor screen. That leaves much more room for image canvases.

In Figure 3, on page 2, that bottom-left dialog box from Figure 1 has been resized and icons for many other dialogs/palettes have been added. Figure 3 shows the combination dialog box opened in the Pattern Grid (paint bucket icon) dialog.
