Question #1.
Photoshop CS4.
Edit > Auto Blend Layers > Stack Images
Is this focusing stack? If it is, why is it happening? What am I doing wrong?
Any comment will be helpful.
Thanks in advance.

I'm just trying to find time myself to try some focus stacking so I don't have any experience to go on. However, here is a link I found and plan to try. Perhaps it will help with what looks like alignment issues.

Thanks francisparker for the response but I did align the images before stack them.

Getting halos around high contrast edges is fairly common in focus stacks. Some focus stacking software is a bit better at minimising this (eg zerene stacker) but it is fairly common to have to do some repair work with the cloning tool after a stack to clean up errors like this.
