I think Wayne and the LR developers have it right in theory. I'm pretty sure 
I've seen something on finding the optimum 
thing. As I recall, comparing duples and discarding the losers was the optimal 

Not saying what you do isn't best for you. I think I prefer paired comparisons. 
Four almost identical images makes my 
brains and eyes tired just thinking about keeping track of the differences and 
evaluating which are more important.

My personal favorite means of comparison is layers, being able to switch 
between images without moving my eyes. But 
that's certainly not practical for the kind of work which is the subject of 
this sub-thread.

Oh! Right! My principal means of comparison in FastStone is using the full 
screen viewer and the arrow keys to switch 
images without moving my eyes.
