I am fairly new to Photoshop and learning CS6.
I have been processing stacked images, (focus stacking), for my macro photography in CS6.
Actually performing the tasks is ok, I have managed that ok.
What I am a little concerned about is "when activating all layers" and "auto blending" quite a bit of flickering starts on the screen of CS6.
I notice that the histogram flickers on and off, some panels flicker along with other 'bits' of the screen as the computer does it's work.
Is this normal?
I am using a MacBookPro 15" upgraded to 8GB ram on Snow Leopard 10.6.8.
Any reassurance would be appreciated...

I'm not sure what you mean by "when activating all layers", but what you might be experiencing is the document window updating while the files are stacked and masked. This would be dependent on your system speed. Stacking and blending are intensive processes.
If the end results appear stable, I wouldn't be concerned.

The "Activating all layers" is when the software is processing the raw images into photoshop from ACR and producing a layer for each image. Sorry if I haven't used the correct terminology...

Ok, thank you k photon. The result looks ok to me and from what others have said on here my images seem to work ok once blended.
Maybe the MacBook Pro isn't 100% in terms of speed, as you say, when the software is demanding much processing power...?
I will keep an eye on it...
Thank you again.
