I am interested in starting into macro. Just bought 105 Micro, have TC 2.0 and bought a set of extension tubes. After seeing the 'disposable pie plate' photo by 480 sparky and others I can see that focus stacking is a neat and I am sure challenging process. My question is what software is required to handle this? I currently have and am trying to master photoshop elements 11. A pro that I know says that even CS5 doesn't do an adequate job and recommends Zyrene Stacker. I am a ways from even trying focus stacking and if there is substantial added software cost (and a steep learning curve) I will just file it as something to think about someday. Thanks, Jim B
