Focus Stacking Macro Photos (Open Source Enfuse)
|5 image stack combined using Enfuse|
A method of stacking multiple focal-plane images from macro shots into a single image with fused in-focus regions. This tutorial is a straightforward walkthrough on aligning the images (using Hugin's align_image_stack), then feeding the aligned images into Enfuse.
A base set of parameters for Enfuse are given that produces good results for many images. In the event that the results are not satisfactory, then a more advanced set of options are explored to fine-tune the results.
|Focus masks automatically generated by Enfuse to isolate the in-focus area of each image.|
