    I’ve been processing digitally bracketed images for over three years using a variety of software products. I also use a lot of other image editing products because, sometimes, it is simply easier to get the look I want with one product when all other products with similar processes just don’t quite put “into the ball park”, which is where I need to be to fine tune. I just upgraded to PSE 8. I wouldn’t want to be without PS, but based upon my experiences with photo-merge exposure to date, on a scale of 1-10, with ten being worst, it gets a top rating of 11.
    Correctly defined this should be a process of “exposure blending”, which keeps the correctly exposed values of each bracketed image while discarding the incorrectly exposed values of each bracketed image. PSE8’s photo merge-exposure process does not observe this definition, and the results are, to my experience, dismal.
