Dr Brown's Services

Russell Brown's famous Stack-a-Matic Photoshop script. This powerful tool expedites and simplifies image stacking for star trails, and does what no other stacking software can: after running the script, you are left with a full size PSD file with editable layers, each preloaded with an empty layer mask. Simply download the file, unzip it and follow the Read Me PDF instructions to install the script. Please note, manual installation is required, so make sure that you carefully place the various components in the proper locations.

Russell Brown is a Senior Creative Advisor for Adobe, and a helluva great guy. Follow him on Facebook, and check out his website. Please do not contact him for technical support.
