Helicon Focus Advice

Hi,

I downloaded Helicon Focus software to stack images for macro photography. It works well, and I like using it. However, I've since become aware that Helicon Soft is based in Urkraine. Does a Ukrainian based company represent a security risk for American users? A little xenophobic I realize but better safe than sorry.

thanks,

Abinoone

Sorry, can't address the security risk issue. However, I have always been very pleased with Helicon's customer service.  If this keeps you up at night then just use Zerene. Zerene's customer service is also fantastic.

What risk are you afraid of? You can block it from any network access. You can also virus scan it. If you have a technical background you can log every memory access and file changes it makes.

I have 0 concern, personally.
