Version 4.32, 23rd April 2015

  • Compatibility with Lightroom 6.
  • Hosted version of Enfuse now updated to the latest version.

Version 4.31, 29th November 2013

Version 4.30, 29th November 2013

  • Now works correctly with the latest versions of Enfuse and Align_Image_Stack.
  • When installing the versions of Enfuse and Align_Image_Stack hosted by the Photographers Toolbox (also updated), the plugin will automtically get either the 32 or 64 bit version (Windows).
  • Updated to the latest version of ExifTool (used to copy the metadata to the blended image).

  • Better error reporting.

  • Minor changes to self update mechanism.
