    Let say I have picture image file no 1,2,3,4,5.......100 and I want to shift no. 80 beside no. 2 for easy comparison. In Window, its easily done by just shifting the image and will not snap back. In Mac, how?

    If you're asking what I think you're asking, the answer would be to click on #2 to select it in the Finder, hold down the command key and click #80 to select a second, non-contiguous item. Now hit space to bring up Quicklook and click the "Index Sheet" icon in Quicklook, which will display the two images side by side. You can do this with as many images as you want, so long as they're all in the same folder.

    Alternately, if they're both open in separate windows in Preview (or any other image editing/viewing app), activate Expose for that window (F10 I think is the default), and you'll see the open windows tiled for easy comparison.
