I am wondering if there is a way to change the stack order when doing a photomerge? I have some quartet pictures and it is hard to get four faces thaqt look good so photomerge is my answer. Sometimes I wish I could change the stacking order so I could get the best shot of each person. anyone know of a way to do this...right now I crop out the bad shot but it would be sooo much easier to just change the correct shot to the top of the stack. I use the interactive but it doesn't seem to allow this.

The order is based on the order of the filenames loading.

But you probably want to merge to layers (just load and align), then use layer masks to isolate or remove portions.
