About

2023 Mac Pro M2 Ultra

For my photographic work, I use Zerene Stacker heavily for focus stacking and it takes minutes to do some stacks, so speed here matters. Zerene Stacker is not the fastest stacking software out there, but minimizing touchup work is far more important and that’s where Zerene Stacker shines by yielding results that minimize the need for retouching and my retouching time is far more important than the computer time.

Zerene Stacker is outstanding at using all CPU cores. Being Java-based, it does not use the GPU.
