Resolution, Raster Alignment, and Georeferencing

Hey all, I'm having an issue with 3 different problems wrapped up in one. Individually, I can solve them. But put together, I cant. My issue is this... I have satellite imagery products and they are on a slightly different resolutions ( approximately varying .5 meters). I can make them the same spatial resolution through the resample tool (Data Management --> Raster --> Raster Processing --> Resample). So thats done. Now for the sequence of the next two steps, I dont know. The alignment can be easily solved if I snap the rasters and it works wonderfully (since they are now the same cell size). But then if I georeference them, it shifts the alignemnt and they are off again. If I do the georeferencing first, then once I snap the rasters the georeferencing is ruined. What is the order I should be these processes? Im dying over here. Is it 1). resample 2). Align Rasters (snap raster) 3). Georeference

                    Or is it 1). Resample 2) Georeference 3) Align Rasters (snap raster)

                    Or neither???
