Hi Jonathon,

I use Registax - bit of a newbie at it, but it does seem to work, and is reasonably easy to get started with. It's [color=#cc0000]FREE[/color] too, which is a help.

Didn't know you could stack in photoshop - how do you do that? Layers ????

Thanks Tom

Dont do any stacking at the mo, someone at school reckons u can probably do the stacking in Photoshop - was just wondering if you could and how?

Registax sounds good and if its free sounds like I should give it a go.

You can stack in Photoshop - I have done it - but it is much harder work than is necessary when Registax will do a better, quicker and more predictable job of it!

Having stacked in Registax, I always finish my post processing with Photoshop - it is superb for this!
