In automator, create a new service with the following settings:


Service receives selected __files or folders__ in __Finder.app__


Shell __/bin/bash__
Pass input: __as arguments__


In shell input box, remove 'cat' and replace with:
/usr/bin/opendiff $1 $2


Save as 'Compare Files' (or whatever you want).


Voila - you can now select 2 items in finder and diff them with a right-click and 'Compare Files' menu item.
