Currently, there is no easy way to compare either two snapshots or to compare one snapshot with the current edit. Both would be very convenient when working with snapshots.

 

A possible workaround is dragging one edit step from the protocol into the "Before" pane of the Before-After view, but you never know if you picked the right edit step (making a snapshot leaves no trace in the protocol pane), and also you cannot compare two snapshots that way. See discussion in this thread: https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-classic-discussions/snapshots-how-to-compare-them-side-by-s...

The easiest way I can think of is to

Create 2 Virtual Copies of the Master photo that has snapshots

Click on virtual copy 1 and apply snapshot 1

Click on virtual copy 2 and apply snapshot 2

Compare them however way you wish.

In Develop, you can always use Before/After view without creating a VC. Just enable it, then drag the snapshot into the Before side.

There are some issues with that method.

1.  I doesn't compare 2 snapshots. It compares one snapshot with the present edit unless you do more operations.

2. The before view is now ALWAYS the snapshot unless you undo it,   This is probably not what you want.

3. You can't drag from the snapshot panel to the before view, you have to drag from the develop panel and it doesn't have a history step where you created the snapshot so which step do you know to drag from.

That's still true 2½ years later: You can only compare one step from the protocol to the latest edit, by dragging that step into the "Before" panel. Adobe, please make it easier to compare two snapshots or at least to compare one snapshot to the current edit. That seems like a very common use case with snapshots, and I often miss that possibility.

Adobe, please make it easier...

 

We're not Adobe in the Discussions part of the forum, we're just Lightroom Classic users and we can't add features. You want to place your suggestion in the "Ideas" part of the forum.
