Building on jr's suggestion, I wonder if the builds are happening with 
some sort of CI/CD system, if it might be possible to automate the 
montage and include a 'diff' image in it to show areas where the 
algorithms differ.  That might make it easier for someone looking at the 
results to see what the differences are (and to look past areas that 
might look different but are visually identical - because human eyes are 
weird sometimes).
