Swipe reveal transition required

I’m trying to find a way of having two very similar photos, taken years apart, one on top of the other but being able to have a ‘moving bar’ to swipe left to right and back to reveal one or the other.
This way the viewer will be able to study the differences, by swiping to any parts of each image.
This is typically used by specialist software people to show ‘before and after’ using their software.
Maybe a slideshow type would have a transition type effect?
I tried to Google what I was after but not very well, hopefully someone will know.
Thanks in advance

This is the kind of thing you are talking about? Where are you planning to use it? As an app on PC or phone? On a website?

Hi Chris, I have just had a quick look at the examples and they are just what I was trying to get. I'm out most of today but I will have a better look later. To answer your question I put local photos on our local Memories site on Facebook. My earliest photos are from the late 1960s, so I show updated views, but only one can be shown at once. I started to put a two picture slide show of the two photos with a transition, which is ok but the viewer has no control and has to watch the complete cycle.
Thanks very much for the information, although it looks quite technical!

Don't think it's going to be possible to do this on Facebook, you'd need your own website, a Wordpress one would let you create a gallery very easily and the compare plug-ins are free. It would be pretty cheap and you could link to it from Facebook, you might be able to 'embed' the photos on a Facebook page. Alternative would be an animated GIF to show changes from A to B and back in a loop.

Chris, it looks like any of these would do what I think I require, however I'm not able to understand how to make any of them work!
The first one (Twenty Twenty( looks good, but do know of an idiot's guide, or some worked examples can be found?
Do you think it's possible that a 'slideshow' compiler could have this feature built in?
Thanks again
