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?July 23, 2009 at 4:07 am #295066
Try this video tutorial :
From 2nd minute to 3rd minute are related to Focus Blending (or Focus Stacking).

When is refresher 3 ?July 30, 2009 at 8:32 am #295853Yeo, Wee HanSpectator
Are you stacking to gain more DOF? If you are using windows, then download CombineZM which is free and easy to use.

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.July 30, 2009 at 5:24 pm #295911
I stacked to gain dof. I tried before combiZ but was amazed by the flexibility of CS4 auto-align and auto-blending functions.September 21, 2009 at 8:07 am #301470
I have CS3….anyone knows the procedure for CS3….I tried to use the CS4 procedure and failed miserably!! Help needed!!!

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

I found a procedure on the web for CS3 but only uses 2 images….gave it a try and it works.
Now how to figure out how to stack more than 3 imagesSeptember 21, 2009 at 5:09 pm #301526Low, Mun Kit PeterParticipant

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.
