Default Focus Stacking

Here is my effort using Helicon Focus. The 9 separate focused shots are included.

That did great Bynx - it looks good. Helicon does a good job.

It sure does. Its so simple to fix the focus problem with close up shots. I think you can do the same thing in CS4 and CS5.

Zerene stacker and CombineZP seem to be effective also. I thought about getting Helicon but the license only last for a year (then reverts to the demo mode) unless you get the $200 version.

This was 8 shots and I used Helicon Focus. Its full frame, no cropping. The camera lens was a couple cm from the front of the barrel.
