    Focus Stacking in Photoshop - Horrible Results

    ronaldl54466383

      Hello.  I've been attempting to use Photoshop CC to stack images.  I have a camera that can utilize focus bracketing.

       

      I recently tried to stack 99 focus bracketed images, with a very small focus differential, with horrible results in Photoshop CC.  The process was: 1) auto-align; 2) auto-blend; 3) flatten layers.

       

      Below is the result of my stacked image. The result should have been a sharp picture from front to back. What I got was gobs of blur everywhere. Wasn't expecting such poor results from Adobe.

      Please, if anyone has any useful input/advice, I'd be very grateful!
