Is there a simple way to keep the Preview window on top of another window? Basically what I'm trying to do is compare pictures on my hard drive to pictures on a webpage in Safari. I keep having to click back and forth between Preview and Safari because the Preview window wont stay on top. I read that the program Afloat should do the trick and I downloaded it but I don't seem to be able to get it to work.

    The usual way is to hide all application except the browser and Preview, position and size both windows side by side so you can see both.

    Thanks for the reply. That does work except I have to zoom out in Safari to get everything to fit inside the resized window and if there is any text I need to read it is small and hard to read. When I used to use Windows XP I would place the Windows FAX and Picture viewer window somewhere on the page where it wouldn't cover over anything important and it would always stay on top. But I had to make the switch back to Apple because I missed Quick Look and Spotlight too much.
