Many users have photo libraries that include photos taken over a long period of time, e.g., over several years. Photo library applications can index such photos and enable viewing a timeline of photos of particular persons or pets. However, there is no easy way to see a comparison, e.g., a side-by-side view of two different entities at the same age. This disclosure describes techniques to provide such a view. With user permission, age information for various individuals in their photo library is obtained, e.g., by seeking user input via a user interface. When a user requests a comparison view, such information for each individual is utilized to identify photos of the individuals taken at a similar age. The identified photos are displayed on a relative timeline such that photos taken near a similar age are shown close to each other.
