I have Lightroom 6 and Photoshop Elements 2020. I am trying to Stack photos to get the best clearest image. I select 2 images that I want to stack and right click and go to Edit In. Then I try and go to Open as layers in Photoshop but it's all grayed out and will not let me click on it. What am I doing wrong?

I'm not sure open as layers works with Photoshop Elements. I think it's looking for the Photoshop app. Do you have Photoshop installed on your computer?

I also have Lightroom and this is on a Mac if that makes any difference.

You can open both files into the PSE 2020 Editor app. From the photo bin select one photo and press Ctrl+A to select all and from the menu choose:

Edit >> Copy

Select the second image in the photo bin and from the menu choose:

Edit >> Paste

Both images will now be stacked as layers.

I've moved this question to the correct forum for what you want to do. That is the PS Elements forum.
