WE Regret to inform you but as of March 7, 2020 we have withdrawn and no longer sell or support Advanced Stacker Plus and related products. Supporting Windows versions has always been easy, but we have observed that nearly every Mac update added a new difficulty. While we personally update our Mac OS when we can – the effort to debug, repackage and distribute with every change means it is no longer cost effective or time effective.
Would you like to create amazing star trails and cloud effects with a few clicks?
We thought so. Hundreds of hours of experimentation and testing have been poured into this singularly handy addition to Photoshop. This action supports any version of Photoshop from CS3 to CS6 and even CC on Mac or PC to create images like these and includes special effects like comets, midgets and streaks. NOTE: Versions of Photoshop prior to CS3, Photoshop Elements and Photoshop Lightroom are NOT supported.
With Photoshop you have awesome incredible power to aid your creation. And with the action you can combine, RAW, TIFF, JPG, GIF, PNG… anything that Photoshop is able to open.
Not only does this Advanced Stacking action smush your photos together in interesting ways, but it can also be used to create eye-popping timelapse effects. Like this, and this and this. If you have Photoshop CC you can create a timelapse without exiting the program. Or you can use one of many other methods to take your fancy images and create a timelapse.

What Our Customers Say about our Actions
I came across this while searching for an easier way to run this in CS5. It worked fantastically.
~ Jeff J.
thanks for the action, works great on my Mac
I love the action and am recommending it to others.
~ Steve J.
Just a quick note to thank you for an amazing ATN routine! Took my first ever star trail images at the Grand Canyon and between the Stacker Checklist and your Photoshop stacker action, everything went perfectly! I was even able to use the action from within Photoshop CS3, and it worked exactly the as in CS5.
~ Christopher H.
It worked the first time with RAW files – no need to convert it to JPG … huge time saver
Instruction must be good … i followed & was able to pull it off the first time. never happen before with other web-posted-photoshop instructions so either i am getting smarter or your instruction is plain & simple.
Thanks for the tutorial and the action from CS5! really helped me process my first star trail shot!
Great information and very inspiring with the easy to follow steps. Got my first image together by carefully following everything and it seemed to work perfectly no probs. Thankfully no issues. All good!
