Exposure/Focus Blending PS error.


I am beside myself trying to figure out why I can’t get it to work.  I did it for years for landscape shots and tonite I tried to for some macro food shots.  I even rewatched the video that taught me to do it.

Open the pics as layers in PS from LR

Auto Align

Top layer, use the layers icon with the circle in the middle.  I always used NORMAL

The 2 paint swatches should be White & Blk

Click brush,  set opacity/flow

Start swiping.

Am I missing something?  Normally I can see in the layer section the whitebox changing as you swipe over the area.  Nothing was working.

Really could use some advise on this,
