. I have the Adobe Photoshop CS4 for Photographers, The Ultimate Workshop book, authored by Jeff Schewe and Martin Evening. Some of what it teaches was only good for the 'extended' version of Ps CS4 which I did not have. But now that I'm subscribing to the current versions of Ps, those features of CS4 that I did not have are now just the normal features of Ps. I decided to try a method of combining exposures (and this method is also available in Affinity Photo) that utilizes stacking images as layers, then making the layers into one smart object layer. The example in the book utilized fireworks images. I have fireworks images. In 2010 I parked my car in a secure location. I combat crawled across the mesa with my photo gear—including tripod—to within 50 yards of the fireworks launch site. In some of my shots the launch tubes (think largish mortar) can be seen. I eluded the all terrain patrols meant to keep out riffraff such as myself. And got some nice shots. I used the Ps menu File > Scripts > Load Files into Stacks to put a few fireworks images into Ps. I moved them around a bit. I selected all the layers and used Layer > Smart Objects > Convert to Smart Objects so that they were all in one layer. Then Layer > Smart Objects > Stack Mode > Maximum. This resulted in an image that had far better contrast and detail than any of my previous attempts using what I had known about layer blend modes such as Screen. I also searched and found that the exact same process can be accomplished in Affinity Photo. Stack Mode for smart objects, in both editing apps, also has the option Median which is often used to get rid of people in scenes. Everything works best of course if the images are shot using a tripod. Median keeps what is the same across all the images and eliminates what isn't the same (people). Someday I'm going to shoot a bunch of photos in a popular location and try it. Meanwhile, I thought I'd show and talk about a Ps feature that I hadn't been able to try before now.
