Portable Zerene Stacker Pro 1.04 Build T202105271130 (x64)




Zerene Stacker Portable is a “focus stacking” program designed specifically for challenging macro subjects and discerning photographers. Of course it works great with simpler subjects, close-ups, and landscapes also! This subject is a common fruit fly, as seen through a 100X microscope. Individual image on the left, stacked result on the right.

Zerene Stacker Portable is a great package if focus stacking is your bag. Zerene allows you to combine a large number of images at different focus points and stitch them together, compensating for the minutely small focus planes that any individual extreme macro shots have. Zerene Stacker, the leader in extreme macro software, has a deep workflow.
To understand this, start at the focus stacking overview of extreme-macro.co.uk. Alternatively, start at focus stack preparation, work your way through shooting the stack, stack your images and finally perform the necessary focus stack post processing.
