Bryan Posted April 18, 2016 Share Posted April 18, 2016 I've been playing with image stacking recently to try to get an extended depth of field in close ups. I've tried Photoshop's Align Layers, followed by the Blend layers command, but with indifferent success. The Align bit works fine, but the Blend operation tends to leave ghastly out of focus chunks, and clearly cannot handle complex combinations of sharpness and unsharpness. This caused me to waste a load of time manually editing and then combining layers to try to achieve the best overall sharpness. The result is a lot better than the automated process, and I have managed to keep the subject sharp overall, but there are still chunks of background that are way too blurred. | have couple of questions, (1) has anyone got a feel for the QC tolerance level for this kind of thing and (2) are there better techniques/software out there that I should be using?
