  1. Compare is nice but you overlooked a bug they have had in this mode since they introduced it. When you exit compare mode you will have two photos selected, not one. One of them will be the photo you picked, and the other one will be adjacent to it. Leaves the user confused and frustrated.

    • Sadly, there’s not much you can do to deal with that on an iPad (except get a more powerful iPad or hope Adobe releases an update that resolves the problem you are having).

  4. Good idea! Using flags while doing this would make it more useful for my needs.
