One of my favorite website features is split screen image comparisons. This is great for anyone who wants to feature before and after images of work their business has done. It’s compact in the amount of screen real estate it uses and brings a level of interactivity to your website that you just don’t get by simply having two images next to each other. Think contractors, re-modelers, painters, architects, interior designers, landscape professionals, or even if your business is in fashion or makeovers. Think about the marketing potential of being able to interactively show the improvements you have made to a building, yard, or even a person.

The key to creating an effective split screen comparison is to line up the images as close as possible. The images below were taken decades apart, and I’ve tried to line them up as best as I could.

Here is a great use for a split screen comparison, this is the downtown financial district of Honolulu, Hawaii. The first images was taken by my father in 1968 and the second by myself in 2017.

Here is another comparison of Waikiki and Diamond Head from the Punchbowl Lookout from 1968 and again in 2018.

One of the more dramatic transformations of the Honolulu skyline is in the Kakaako area. This comparison is from 1995 and 2018, both taken from the lookout at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl.
