I am using the latest version of LR Classic. I can't seem to select photos in two different folders to compare to each other.  Am I doing something wrong or is this an limitation?

Two Ways-

1) You can select multiple folders in the Folder panel if you hold down the [CTRL] key as you click on each folder.

2) Create a Collection and add the photos you want to compare to this Collection. Or use Quick Collection in the same way.

or even-

3) Choose the 'All Photographs' view in the Catalog panel, and select photos to compare.

You can select two folders at the same time by clicking on one folder and then Cmd-clicking (Mac) or Ctrl-clicking the other one. There are better ways however. Add the photos to a collection, such as the Quick Collection.
