I wouldn't worry about a specific aperture size. If you want the background to be more blurred, you can use a wider aperture and take more shots to make sure everything is in focus, though that means you need to make sure everything will be motionless for longer, and you'll have more pics to stack. ...

I'm wondering: Are you using it on Linux with Wine? That may be the problem.

Okay, so hopefully either that is already taken care of and I wasn't aware, or hopefully Dan is reading this thread and will make the system automatically restore one license any time someone un-installs Helicon.

I think the real question is can your computer handle the files? (It also depends on how many photos you merge.)

What are your computer's specs?

RAM?
Operating system?
Processors?

I don't really know, but I think it can handle big jobs.

1. In the Lite version, you don't get the retouching filters (which can help if you need to manually brush-in any area from one of the photos that wasn't merged properly). Also, if you get the Pro MP version, if you have multiple processors (like core 2 duo) in your computer, the program can take ad...

Try making smoothing high and radius low or vise versa.

Also, perhaps there should be different sets of calibrations, like one used for a specific lens/microscope, one used for different diopter lenses, etc.

You know, what you can always do in the mean while is to use Helicon Filter to merge the images, and then use GIMP or something to put pre-made scales into the image.

I see. That looks like a nice tool for micro photography where the user can pre-define microscope or zoom settings. I'll post a suggestion, maybe it will be added in the next version.

The only factor that should affect the length of the scalebar relative to the length of the subject is the magnification (zoom). The absolute size of the scalebar will vary according to printing, viewing, etc., but the size relative to the subject should always remain constant. You're right. Printi...
