    I am trying to stack few pictures and was told that is rather easy, but just can’t really make it.
    Can someone help?

    I have selected 4 pictures using bridge and open in Photoshop CS4 at the sametime.
    I am trying to copy layer and draging to the next picture by creating layers so that I can flatten it at the end after editing.

    How to proceed from here? :(

    Stephen,

    Try this video tutorial :
    http://www.adobe.com/designcenter/photoshop/articles/lrvid4120_ps.html

    From 2nd minute to 3rd minute are related to Focus Blending (or Focus Stacking).

    Cheers,
    SC

    Stephen,

    Are you stacking to gain more DOF? If you are using windows, then download CombineZM which is free and easy to use.

    Cheers

    Combinz works only if the photos are aligned. CS4 allows to align the photos and after that can auto-blend to stack it. Now with handheld, I can stack, and I can even take a macro panaromic photo and stitch together.

    Han, CY,

    I stacked to gain dof. I tried before combiZ but was amazed by the flexibility of CS4 auto-align and auto-blending functions.

    Dennis,

    I believe Focus Blending only available in CS4. You can download CombineZM to do stacking too.

    HI Peter,

    Go here

    http://community.spiritofphotography.co … hp?page=22" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

    However when you get to the part that says Hide layers…..that does not work when you start to erase to reveal the layer below….but reveal layers works instead.
