Image Stacking Software

Helicon Focus

Helicon Focus is a Focus stacking software:
Focus Stacking is a post-processing technique that extends the depth of field in your photographs.
To use this technique, you take several images of the same scene, focusing your lens on a different part of the object for each shot. Then you can use Helicon Focus to blend all the sharp areas together and produce a completely sharp image.
