In fact, this Mac app is difficult to describe unless you need what it does, in which case it fills the need and it’s free, too, but for some Mac users it’s a solution that is absolutely positively begging for a problem to solve.
Digital Puzzle Pieces
We Mincey folk trace our heritage back through the South, true blue, tea drinking Southerners who, prior to the computer age, would wile away the hours with a table of puzzle pieces, or flip through the pages of a scrapbook or photo album.
The digital age has altered that landscape somewhat. We have air conditioning now. And digital scrapbooks, photo albums, and jigsaw puzzles..
The ability to distinguish one image or photo from another is what caught my eye about Blink, the quintessential one-trick pony app for Mac users who want to see the differences between two images or photos.
Blink works by comparing two images or photos so you can see the differences in each. It’s aptly named because Blink will actually ‘blink’ in the areas where there are differences between two images.
Using Blink is a bit convoluted but it works.
You’ll need to name the first photo Picture1.tiff and the second photo (or, image) Picture2.tiff and place both on the Mac’s Desktop folder. Open Blink and click the Start button. If there are differences between the two images or photos then Blink will, well, blink, so you can see where the differences are.
And, that’s a wrap. Blink is simple, a bit odd, and free– but it works.
