Tech Talk – Using Stack Mode for Smart Objects in Photoshop

Using Stack Mode for Smart Objects in Photoshop – by Milos Brkic

Presented on February 4, 2021.

Have you ever wanted to remove people or cars from a busy site, yet there was always someone inside your framed composition? The technique I discuss here will allow you to do that by taking multiple shots and using Smart Objects and their Stack Mode in Photoshop. There are other uses for this technique as well, such as:

  • Removing moving objects from a scene
  • Creating long exposure effect in daylight photos (e.g., from movie clip frames or time lapse series)
  • Noise reduction in astrophotography (and other low light situations)
  • Other artistic effects

Click on  Using Smart Objects And StackMode to see how to do it. 

Here are just two examples from the presentation:
