Abstract: The DAOPHOT package has been widely used by the astronomical community for obtaining stellar photometry in crowded fields. The first section of this paper discusses the port of DAOPHOT to the IRAF image processing system which have been undertaken in order to increase its availability to the astronomical community and enhance its scientific capabilities. The second section discusses some modifications to DAOPHOT's profile-fitting algorithms, intended to improve the program's accuracy when reducing undersampled data.
