As you're looking for Focus Stacking of images in Photoshop Elements, please check the steps below and let us know if it helps:
Focus Stacking with Photoshop Elements
Or do a search to find the very affordable Elements+ add-on.
It's a very powerful set of tools (scripts) to recover many features of the full Photoshop.
There is a script for focus stacking.
I purchased elements plus as you suggested, and it works fine now, puzzled why I wasn't informed that so much was locked away within the program!
Great, thanks, it works a treat with it!
Can you tell me if the focus stacking steps you have shown above are the same steps to follow in Elements 2020? I am a new user and am trying to find out how to focus stacking in Elements 2020. I do not want to use an add-on, if possible.
Thank you very much.
I currently have Elements 12 with the add on Elements+ for photo stacking, I'm looking at buying Elements 2019 (2020 won't work on my Mac). I would like to know two things:Will 'content aware' work on 2019 as it doesn't on Elements 12, AND do I have to purchase a 'new' Elements+ for the 2019 version and how much is it?
Traveler582, why isn't Elements 2020 working on your Mac? If you have updated to Catalina, or intend to do so, Elements 2019 won't work with it for sure. Also, you cannot buy Elements 2019 from Adobe anymore, so you will have to purchase from a third party.
Adobe has nothing to do with Elements+. It looks like the price for each version is $12. I don't know about their update policy.
Added: Content aware features are available in both 2019 and 2020.
I have Sierra 10.12 and Elements 2020 needs 10.13 or higher.
I've already installed Elements 2019 in a 30-day Trial version on my Mac from Adobe and the option to Buy is there.
My reasoning for all this is I want the option for Content Aware which only came out on Elements 13....but I also want my Focus Stacking with Elements +ware
I'd be interested to know if clicking the Buy Now button takes you to an Elements 2019 purchase window or whether it leads to a 2020 purchase. Adobe makes a dowload of the last two versions available for those who need to download the program again e.g. for a new computer. Is that how you got it? I presume that download has a standard trial/purchase dialog until a purchased serial number has been entered.
You're right, it's leading me to a 2020 version, and if you didn't read the fine print or check the required OS you'd be screwed. Now that I've tried and love the content aware fill, I wan thte 2019! Any suggestions?
I see some brand new unopened 2019's still available at ebay.com. If it helps any, the one by seller nomadjim has the same PN # and UPC # as my USA version.
Yes, Thx, I went to ebay and also B & H, both $89
The adobe website was for $74. That's what bugs me....
Actually I see one on ebay for Photoshop Elements 2019 & Premiere Elements 2019 Brand New, both.
Is Premiere anything special??
I haven't used Premiere, it's a video editor.
Ahhh ok, Thanks for that!
Are you unable/unwilling to upgrade your OS?
