comment Deciding between two lenses
The sigma you mention is designed for crop sensor cameras (DC is sigma's equivalent of EF-S or DX). Also, please separate out your answer into paragraphs to make it more readable.

comment How can I colorize a black and white photo using colors from a similar photo?
This sounds a bit like a you have a relation ship with this website. If you do , it needs to be stated. Also please provide an example of how good the results are. Maybe an image that you have converted to black and white and recoloured using this website .

comment Working on JPEG saved from RAW is this the same as working on RAW ?
@Unapiedra Is it a full size and 'full' quality JPEG? I thought those were just thumbnail JPEGs.

comment How can I keep my camera warm while photographing time lapses over a few hours of 25F / - 4C temperatures?
My guess is that most people don't look at the tags in most cases, instead reading the title and excerpt.

Please do not make up useless tags. The tags ar meant entirely for sorting questions, not adding to them.

comment Camera rec: 4:3 | DSLR Light-weight, fast focus, image quality
Two things: firstly we generally don't like having thsi sort of question as it becomes out of date quickly, but also can become very subjective and so this question is likely to be closed, and Secondly, the Nikon D3300 and Canon T3i (aka 600D or KissX5) are not mirrorless cameras.

comment Why use JPEG instead of RAW?
Nice idea as a counter question to the multitude of "Benefits of RAW" questions. Maybe a link to this question should be added to the others, or maybe just to the first one?

comment How should I respond to a lowball offer for commercial use of one of my photographs?
The OP has specified that it cannot be given proper gredit due to it's intended purpose.

comment Which alloys are used in the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L?
In that situation the ONLY way to go would be a purpose built (not necessarily custom) camera/insulated case. There will be no DSLRs/lenses made by the big manufacturers that you can buy off the shelf that will handle such extremes.

comment Mirrorless Camera vs mid range DSLR — how to decide?
A note on the lenses, do not get confused between mirror lenses and lenses for SLRs.

comment Can 30 1-second exposures be combined to a form the equivalent of a single 30s exposure?
Answers on Stackexchange should include more detail, rather than just a link top somewhere else. I is fine to include links, but please add more detail to your answer (maybe quote or an explanation in your own words, so that someone doesn't necessarily have to follow the link, but can if they wish for much more detail or a different explanation.

comment What makes a camera (EOS 1100D) shut down during video record?
Have you tried physically switching the camera off and then back on (it may seem obvious, but a lot of people forget to try this basic fix). Canon (at least on the 550D) has a feature that turns the camera off after a certain period to save battery and turning it back on may require turning the camera off and then back on.

comment Will too much time-lapse photography reduce a DSLR's life, or cause any other damage?
Welcome to Photo.stackexchange. The question isn't asking about video, it is asking about time lapse photography, which is taking photos at set intervals, which can be used to make videos that appear to move faster than regular video, however that is not it's only use.

comment Is a 3rd party (Tamron) lens safe to use on a Canon EOS 600D?
@mattdm Indeed, but it may still be possible, if beyond the realms of reasonable possibility.

comment Will filters help me get better colors in my digital photographs of my paintings?
This doesn't really answer the specific question about filters. Could you please edit to talk about filters (i.e. whether or not you think they are worthwhile or will help).

comment Which is better: a smaller f-number lens or a bigger sensor size?
@MichaelClark This is true. I did not consider that.

comment Which is better: a smaller f-number lens or a bigger sensor size?
@MichaelClark That is true, for DSLRs, but I believe (considering that there is no mention of a separate lens in the question) that the OP is asking about P&S cameras, where it is still very feasible to have a larger sensor, while still having decent zoom range.

comment Which is better: a smaller f-number lens or a bigger sensor size?
@MichaelClark True. But in general I think that the OP does not seem to be technically minded on this issue (as in probably no interested in the artistic side of things) I would say that larger sensor/aperture is a safe bet as being the best option. This is why I left the creative things until last.

comment Which is better: a smaller f-number lens or a bigger sensor size?
@MichaelClark I would argue that it doesn't matter because everything you get (maybe except for size of the camera) from a smaller sensor/aperture you can get from a larger one as well.

@Cornelius Ok, Thanks. I'll update my answer to incorporate this.
