Once you align images in Photoshop, how do you output them so that Enfuse can read them?

If I open images as layers in PS, align them, save each layer as a tiff file (save as a copy, not layers), then run Enfuse on those tiffs, I get multiple warnings about no TIFFTAG_SAMPLEFORMAT or TIFFTAG_DATATYPE, unknown field with tag and input image does not have an alpha channel. The Enfuse docs say it will read a multi-layer tiff, but saving as that in PS gives similar warnings.

Those warnings don’t mean much. I use the Alpha channel if I want to exclude parts of the images from the final blend, such as moving people and automobiles. Usually, enfuse does a good job of blending moving clouds and leaves on trees.

One problem is that enfuse will delete EXIF data. I take my final enfused image and put it on top of one of my original images to retain the EXIF tags.
