    Hello,
    you are absolutely right, with AP you can achieve excellent results in “photo stacking”! There is only one, but crucial minus point: You can not save “Stacking” projects in AP in the meantime, because after reloading you can no longer edit the project. All source files (the single photos) have disappeared! So you have to finish a “Stacking Project” in one operation! For example, with 300 single photos, unfortunately, this is often not possible in one day!

      Oh, I didn’t know that. As I use stacking mainly for landscapes, I usually only have 3 to 6 images to stack.

      I guess for huge projects a dedicated tool would be needed…

    Not sure that this is true what Juergies said. I crunched 200 pics (I was testing Merge Stack in AFoto)) of a background at 5m distance into a single pic, then stacked 20 pics in the foreground (stack @ 30 to 50cm from lens, using a 14mm Samyang AF on Sony A7M3) together with the background stack merged pic). The original pics remined in their folder
