Blending = (pixelA + pixelB) / 2;

Difference = func(pixelA - pixelB);

or something like that, so you get plain areas where the content is
identical, and hotspots where there are differences. Maybe this can be
done by making one of the images negative and using 50% alpha blend?

That sounds like a useful feature for quickly finding what has changed
in a graphic file.
