How exactly is a composite Hubble image assembled?

HubbleSiteChannel on YouTube (to which I happily subscribe) has a new video posted, showing us behind the scenes the processing of a composite Hubble image!
"Hubble images are made, not born. Images must be woven together from the incoming data from the cameras, cleaned up and given colors that bring out features that eyes would otherwise miss. In this video from HubbleSite.org, online home of the Hubble Space Telescope, a Hubble-imaged galaxy comes together on the screen at super-fast speed"
