Dear Jeffrey,

Am I to assume you have not found a solution to the problem?

I've been doing some tests. I think it has something to do with transparency around the edge that's getting blended into the image. Are you using the default settings in the align and blend dialogs? Screenshots of your settings for both dialogs would be be good datapoints

Dear Jeffrey,

I misunderstood your job role. Hence the reason why I shared those images. The problem has nothing to do with settings, workflow, or the like. The problem is with the algorithm relating to the aligning and blending. I know others have experienced the same problem, but didn't know that Adobe had been aware. As far back as 2014, which is a long time in this field, users were complaining.

At the start, I wrongly thought the problem was with my technique, or the equipment. Five months after starting macro photography and not having one clean photograph using Photoshop, I guess it is time to be sensible and turn to others who have taken the time to develop a product that aligns and blends properly.  

I will continue pushing until something is done. Then I will return. Until then, I am forced, like others before me, to go elsewhere.

If you do solve the problem, please let me know.

Regards,
Errol Campbell
