Helping to extend your depth of field by compositing numerous exposures together, Helicon Focus Lite from Helicon Soft is a focus stacking program offering refined and intuitive controls to benefit macro shooting applications as well as landscape, tabletop, and nearly any other kind of controlled photographic scenario. The basic premise of the software requires you to make sequential photographs from a fixed position at varying focus distances, and then the software will automatically combine the images into a single file in order to generate greater depth of field than is possible with a single exposure. An unlimited number of images can be used within each focus stack and both advanced algorithms and interpolation methods are applied to ensure a high degree of clarity and detail, as well as retain an overall natural appearance. The software supports 16-bit color depth files, as well as the ability to work with raw file formats, and it can be seamlessly integrated within existing editing workflows via a dedicated Adobe Lightroom plug-in or using command line protocols for use with other applications.

This download version of Helicon Focus Lite is a one-year license for use on up to four different computers, as long as only one copy is used at the same time.

Focus stacking application lets you composite an unlimited number of focus-bracketed photos into a single file for extending your depth of field.
Supports editing with 16-bit per channel color depth for preserving finely nuanced hues, colors, and tones. Color profiles can also be used for accurate color reproduction throughout the post-production workflow.
In order to preserve the most detail from each image, raw file formats are supported and can be opened within Helicon Focus or in Lightroom via the Helicon plug-in.
Advanced processing algorithms and interpolation methods help to retain the greatest amount of detail possible when compositing images in order to produce a vivid, yet natural appearance.
Ideal for macro and scientific application, a scale bar can be added to imagery to more accurately represent the size of your subjects.
Fast performance and short rendering times are possible through the support of multi-core processors and 64-bit operating systems from both Mac and Windows.
For maintaining your existing workflow, Helicon Focus Lite can be used as a plug-in within Adobe Photoshop Lightroom or command line protocols can be used to call Helicon Focus from within other editing applications.

Helicon Focus Lite (Download, 1-Year License) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from It is okay. I have been working with the program and it is okay. I get lots of errors when trying to load photos like image is wrong size when it is exactly the same size as the previous photo. I tried to load 5 photos and it gave another error message. I have had luck with a 2 or 3 photos for focus stacking but results are not that sharp. I am using a focusing rail on a tripod. I sent an email to the HELP section and they wanted me to forward the pictures to them so they could work with them to see what caused the errors messages. They were a day late as I deleted those pictures to try a different approach to the same subject. Maybe after several weeks of experimenting it may be worth the money I spent on it but right now it is not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent program easy to use, does what it is supposed to do. I compared the results with the same photos in photoshop, and in about a third of the cases, I could see that the helicon focus did a better job than photoshop. Highly recommend
