After a graphics inspection is run, the Inspection panel appears. Differences between the Master and Sample images can be viewed and reviewed, with the ability to assign levels and comments to each difference.
The Flash panel is displayed to the right of the sample Report panel which lets you view the differences overlaid on one another.
1. Navigating differences
Click the Previous or Next arrow to navigate between differences, each of which will be zoomed in for both panels.
2. Zoom levels
For maximizing user experience during navigating through the differences, zoom levels were introduced. These zoom levels will determine how the tool is zooming in when reviewing the differences one-by-one.
The items are not zoomed in at all, the whole page is visible with the difference flashing, as such providing an overview of the entire inspected page. This zoom level is optimal for reviewing in an overall encompassing manner.
Items are zoomed in slightly, allowing a good overview of the relative position and the surroundings within the inspected page/area.
Items are zoomed in moderately, still allowing an overview of the relative position and the surroundings within the inspected page/area.
Items are zoomed in almost entirely, but allowing some overview of the surrounding area to a smaller extent, compared to Medium zoom level. The relative position is not clearly visible, only immediate surrounding area.
The difference is zoomed in completely, fitting the screen, without showing the surrounding area. This zoom level is optimal for reviewing small differences, without regard to the position of the difference compared to the inspected area.
Note: Medium/Large are the recommended zoom levels for optimizing user experience - having an overview of the difference, as well as the relative position within the inspected page/area.
