Hi Jehan! and, thanks! Glad you liked it. Still a lot of post-processing things to learn, though.

All the best.

Hey Ned,
partly just to see what, if anything, I could do with it and partly just to harass you...
I played around with you flower a little. Not sure if I improved it any but, it a little different...
Here's what I came up with. You really have to see them side by side to see any difference.



I like red roses too so, thought I give that a try...



Hope you like em,

Wow, amazing! I just wish I would have paid more attention, though, to the overly-sharp edges (more toward the front)... Thanks GW.

OH!!! Is stacking something I can do in Elments 8? And do you have a link that would show me how to do this... I didn't find anything helpful on the NET, was wondering if you had a link you could send.

Many thanks!

Ned

Hey Ned,
Unfortunately, I don't think stacking is an option in Elements but, I believe you can get one or two programs on line that are free of charge and work pretty well.
If I remember correctly, one is called "CombineZM" if you check with Ronny (rhermans) I think he may have more info than I do. Also, Harriet comes to mind. She's pretty much keeps up on these things. Stacking is fairly strait forward. The hardest part is getting 2 or more shots that are close to identical in framing an image with the exception of the focus, then you let the software do the rest. Its amazing what you can do!

I use CS4 for what little stacking I do, not exactly free. But since I bought it for other reasons, it is in a sense "free". While you have the ability to use layers in PSE, I don't think they have the auto merge capability since it doesn't support layer masks. You could do it by hand for something that's not very complicated (put the various frames in their own layers then erase the OOF parts of each layer to let the sharp one show through), but it would be both labor intensive and fussy.
