How GroupDocs.Comparison works for Image Comparison?
The comparison starts with the upper left corner and compares the entire image pixel by pixel. If the pixels are the same, it moves on to the next one and so on until it finds a difference. The changed pixels are given an ID. It is defined as dabbed, deleted or changed. They are highlighted in a specific color (blue, red or green according to the standard settings).

Source Image

Target Image is same as source image except it has some extra objects on the table and some new code lines in the text editor.

Comparison Result
