Shooting in macro mode, techniques, tips & tricks
Moderator: Stas Yatsenko
I have just downloaded the trial version of Helicon Focus and managed to create some quite good results on first attempt, so very happy. However, I could not import RAW files from my Sony Alpha (ARW format) and had to convert the files to TIFF in Adobe Bridge. Could you suggest a better workflow, so that I can export the stacked image back to Photoshop (I do not use Lightroom) for post-processing, ideally as a RAW file?
For some reason, although I didn't change settings, I am now able to import the RAW files in ARW format and save and export back to Photoshop as a DNG file, which is great. However, in the RAW development settings dialogue box I do not get the menu options you mention or that I see in your video tutorial. The only options I get are 'CODEC' and 'Colour space'. See attached screenshot. Am I doing something wrong? Selecting 'RAW-in-DNG-out loader' under the CODEC menu seems to work fine, so maybe I am worrying about nothing but I don't seem to have the other menu options...
