Source images have been processed in Photomatix at two different settings. Filenames have been manually edited.

1. Preferences>Settings>Images>Stacks set to 'Don't create stack'.

2. Load images. The default view in Groups panel has images correctly sorted in alphanumeric order.

3. Select all and 'Create Stacks by N'=2, Index 0

Result:
Images are grouped in stacks of 2 images, but are not grouped according to alphanumeric filename order. I can't find any logic to the sorting. (See screen shots.)

I have tried with various sets of images and get the same confusing results. Deleting preferences didn't help.

'Stack by N' (without the index choice) was working in Beta1.

I loaded a set of images output from Capture NX2 at varying exposure values. With these images, 'Stack by N' worked correctly.

All images in both tests are 16-bit TIFFs.

Is there specific EXIF info that is required for 'Stack by N' to work?

Judy

But I guess these images didn't have the same 'style' of filename? xxxxx_1 and xxxxx_2 and so on?

I don't see why this should make a difference - just grasping at straws really.

I also wondered whether the time/date data in the EXIF might for some reason be affecting the stacking-by-N in your failing image set.

It's based on an alphabetical sort only.
I will try to rename an image serie like your setup to see if I can detect an issue.

Tried to reproduce but without luck. I'll need these tiff files.

The source files were from two different source folders. For example:

/Volumes/..../Photomatix-light sky/DSC_2764_1.tif

/Volumes/..../Photomatix-saturated landscape/DSC_2764_2.tif

When I moved all of the TIFFs to the same folder, they stacked correctly.

Is APG sorting using the entire file path as filename?

If the images have to be from the same folder to stack correctly, then the user needs to know this.

Oh ! That's the issue. We do an alphabetic sorting based on the full name not the short name.

It could be easily fixed but that may leads to some strange behavior. I prefer to postpone that issue for after 2.5 release.
