Is it possible to maintain a stretched image when migrating from astropixel processor to photoshop? I also lose all the light pollution removal. This even happens when you save it as a fits image and migrate to Pixinsight. I always have the stretch box checked in the program but doesn’t seem to make a difference.

@tabayhay Dear Sammy, how do you exactly save the images? The stretch select box applies to the preview of the image shown in the main window and you need to click the save button next to the stretch select box to save a stretched version of the image. Doing so will create a new file with "-St" in the file name. That is the one you need to open in other software. Also, what version of APP are you on?
