I compiled a group of images into a focus stack. When it was done, I had the sources panel visible. Before using this, I wanted to examine the final image in close up, so I closed the sources panel. Having decided what needed doing, I could find no way of re-opening the sources panel and I had to start again. Is it possible to re-open this panel?

Hello,

I use trial version 1.6.1.93 and I do not see the source panel even after the focus stacking is complete and Clone brush is selected. I tried to go to View > Studio > Sources and it was checked.

Hello, 

I have tried stacking/merging but I never even get to see the sources panel. I have tried unchecking and rechecking in Studio, but still no sources panel. Any ideas what this could be?

After focus stacking, I have found the sources panel always there. However if I save the file (as .afphoto), then when I re-open it the sources panel is empty. I would guess that there is some preference I should have set to get it to be saved in the .afphoto file. Could anyone tell me what this might be?

I've been following the workbook and used the link to download the files.

I have this same question.  There seems to be inconsistency with the Sources Panel.  Sometimes I can close the file and upon re-opening, it's empty.  Other times it re-opens showing the Sources.

 

Is there an answer to why this happens?

When the focus stack is complete I see a source panel and all the individual layers. However, once I do anything (zoom in, zoom out, select a brush, whatever) the sources panel turns empty. I can turn the entire panel on and off, but I never managed to get the actual source layers back. The panel has one merged layer but nothing else. How can I actually work on the individual layers of the focus stack?

I tried a few more times, but the sources panel is still a source of aggravation: sometimes I see source layers, but they are now named "untitled" and some are missing. I don't recall having these issues when working through the focus merge tutorial in the workbook, but now, after banging my head around it for a few hours it's time to change over to a different piece of software.

Hi Mice

Was having the same banging-head on desk situation with the SOURCES panel evaporating so very pleased to find your press the 's' solution. Works a treat (and isn't mentioned in the tutorial).

thank you,

Richard
