Photographic Multishot Techniques
Rocky Nook Publishing recently released Photographic Multishot Techniques by Gulbins and Gulbins. It's an outstanding book with lots of practical help on this very technical subject.
Included in the book are sections on high dynamic range imaging (HDRI), super-resolution, focus stacking, and stitching images. Once you are introduced to the subject matter, they teach you how to effectively combine these techniques to create amazing images.
In addition to Photoshop (Cs2-CS4), they also offer techniques using plug-ins and stand alone programs like PhotoAcute, Photomatix Pro, FDRTools, CombineZM, DOP Detail Extractor, and Helicon Focus. Links to the tools can be found on Rocky Nook's web site. Most offer a free trial version.
This book offers excellent information for anyone who is looking to get the most out of their images. As such, I highly recommend it.
