Close-up inspection of any visible differences involves using (additional) upsampling algorithms applied by the viewer application utilized (the specific nature of which the user often has does not have specific knowledge of, or any control over) - which rather "muddies the waters" of analysis ?

Makes sense. Maintaining the same physical viewing size (paradoxically, it seems) necessarily involves the use of additional display resampling operations when engaging in making visual comparisons.

A good point. My best viewer for comparitive purposed is the oft-maligned FastStone Viewer:

For zooming in, the pixels are simply magnified, seen here at 500%.

What is done to the one pane is done automatically to the other unless the <ctrl> key is held down which is highly convenient.

For zooming out, I have no idea what it does . . . looks like NN, far as I can tell.
