    but even there you will have to convert your image to 8 bits color before you can create any layers I have on good authority that this is true even in PhotoShop 7 In short you probably want something like the GIMP 8 for final image composition especially if you want to create overlays but it is not a strict requirement ImagesPLUS Reviewed 2006 09 01 Version 2 80 Website http www mlunsold com 10 Cost USD 170 License Commericial OS Windows I ve had an opportunity to use ImagesPlus in an somewhat limited fashion My primary motivation for using it was to control my Canon Digital Rebel XT 350D cameras Yes plural Alas that proved to be only partially possible It should be completely possible and Mike Unsold has it working with multiple dissimilar camera but I have two 350Ds with identical firmware and while it sees both camera and even fires their shutters independently but when the software attempts to download the images it hangs Not catastrophically i e I don t have to reboot Windows but enough that it s not fully functional for my needs However ImagesPlus does a lot more than just control digital cameras It can also do file format conversions and serves as a fairly nice image processing tool in it s own right Again I ve used it almost exclusively in the DSLR control mode and for converting raw images to 48 bit linear TIFF Despite the problem with controlling my dual Canon 350Ds the package is worth a good look and Mike Unsold makes his living from this so he s quite responsive to issues in the package Oh and while the software itself fits on a single CD that CD has several video tutorials of how to use the software and the total package includes another four yes a total of five CDs with more video tutorials Iris Reviewed 2002 10 04 Version 3 72 Website http www astrosurf com buil us iris iris htm 11 Cost FreeWare License None OS Windows Iris 11 is a fairly complete piece of software which is not hard to use but not exatly intuitive either Some features are easier to use from the Iris 11 console window others from the menu It has the feel of something pieced together over time by people who were doing it for themselves rather than as a project for other people But the more professional AIP4WIN 12 doesn t have some of the features included in Iris 11 e g maximum entropy deconvolution and Iris 11 is easier to use for batches of AVI frames My chief complaint is that all of the commands for reducing multiple images into a single registered and normalized image take both a filename prefix and a count but won t let you select a starting point in the file sequence That is you can process files jup1 fit through jup100 fit but not jup51 fit through jup100 fit You ll also
