    I have to Auto-Align Layers twice to make it work correctly

      I was working on a problem and discovered this issue.  I have a PSD file.  I "Save As" the PSD file as a TIFF so they should be the same.  Put the TIFF on top of the PSD and chose Auto-Align and set the blending mode of the top Layer to Difference and got this.

      I selected the layers AGAIN and chose Auto-Align AGAIN and this time it WORKED as I got this as the Difference.  A perfect match.

      I tried this on a couple other photos and got the same results.  Seems like the Auto-Align doesn't EXACTLY align the first time you use it.
