I haven't used stacking procedures for ages. The reason it came to my attention and seemed a desirable feature to have, when it was first introduced into CS3 Extended as I recall, was as a result of my frustration when trying to take photos of the ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, back in 2005, with hundreds of tourist continually walking in front of me.

One of the options in the new stacking feature was to remove unwanted objects (or in the case of unwanted people, subjects, not to appear rude). The concept is, one sets up one's camera on a tripod with remote cord attached, then every few seconds one takes a shot over a certain period of time, hoping that during that period of time no-one in front of the camera has remained stationary.

After loading the individual images into a stack...

I recently completed a project just like that. There is a feature in Photoshop Elements that based on the video tutorial I watched is not even available in the full Photoshop. It is in the guided edits and is called Scene Cleaner. It allows you to remove specific objects from a photo and add objects from another photo, automagically. It was a much easier process than what you describe.
