Affinity Photo "focus merge" helps tell the story


Recommended Posts

Is this actually a focus merge? It looks to me that one frame provides the main image; the other provides the ghost image. It is actually a very effective composite.


Windows 11, Affinity Photo 2.4.2 Designer 2.4.2 and Publisher 2.4.2 (mainly Photo).

Hey, John, you are absolutely correct.  Both images were taken within milliseconds of each other and the ghost image was the first frame cut to 35% of it's full resolution, then focus merge was used to create this effect without having a ghost on the hummingbird feeder itself.   Experimenting with the focus merge capability in AP has brought about some very interesting and delightful results.  Unfortunately, being that I'm retired and have too much time on my hands my friends will be getting too many of my results.  I am glad you liked the result and hopefully it made your day a little brighter to see this little wonder of nature.
