This work !!!
------------------------------------------------
$arr1 = array('Color' => 'Red');
$arr2 = array('Img1' => NULL, 'Img2' => 2, 'Color' => 'Yellow');
print_r(array_diff($arr1, $arr2));


When your array contain NULL value the array diff does not recognize that Color is different. But if "Color" is not empty and different in both array the return value is corect.

Sorry for my english !

In PHP '' == NULL, so I think it's correct that array_diff()
treats them the same. It removes all elements from the 1st
argument that are equal (normal PHP equality) to any element
in the other arguments.
