Launch external diff tool for diff between two commits with P4Merge

Hi, I'm using

- SourceTree on 64-bit Windows 10

- Git 2.13.2

- P4Merge

and I have configured P4Merge as the external diff/merge tool.


I have 2 branches.



testmerge - commit 5306ab6

This commit has pushed the following picture.


master - commit 09f5e69

This commit has pushed this picture.


Since P4Merge can diff pictures, I want to diff those 2 commits with P4Merge.



If I click that action, P4Merge returns an error.


I want to diff 2 commits to compare text codes or pictures.

Do I have to add "Diff commands" or parameters to diff those 2 commits?

Or is this feature impossible?


-Best Regards
