Quote: but for some reason it is not recognising my file formats when I search for the photos to add - they are Nef.
It may not support RAW...if so you'd need to convert to JPEG before processing

What I do is:

1. Make adjustments to levels etc to the whole batch using Lightroom.
2. Export whole batch as TIFF files. I find that there are fewer JPEG artifacts this way.
3. Feed the TIFFs into CombineZP

Hmm interesting, I'd always gone right to JPEGs as a first step, but you make a good point on the JPEg artifices which might even be a minor problem even at high quality first saves on JPEG photo. What might not be a problem for regular photo use can indeed be barrier to focus stacking!
