Re: Cropping query

I think I understand - Assuming your pictures were talking at the same place with very little movement this is possible

I do AV shows and it's really useful when I've not had a tripod with me and wanted to take a set of images to show e.g. water or steam moving

Not sure about elements, but you can defintely do it in Photoshop

In CS3 you import a set of files using File > Scripts > Load Files into Stack and select the files you want to process

Then ensuring that Attempt to Automatically align source images is clicked you can import them

It pulls them all in as seperate layers which you then crop to your required size.

You then need to check all the layers go to the edges by turning layers on and off (waste of time exporting if one of your pictures is missing an edge)

Use File > Scripts > Export layers to files to take them back out
